Great job on the app. Sorry if the slashdot effect caused any harm, but it's good to see you're getting recognition for the efforts, eh?

I think I could have handled one... but both hurt a bit. I was able to keep things mostly up so folks could get the apps, which is the important thing, though. Thanks for getting the word out. Smile

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I've got a Linux box at home, so I save all my docs in ODF format. I frequently go to an Internet cafe that has Windows-only computers. When I needed to print or edit my docs, I had to convert them to MS Office format before going to the cafe, then convert them back at home. Now I don't have to go through any conversion hassles. Portable Firefox is great, too. No more having to click on the blue "E" anymore:)

Again, thanks John!

Bravo! Thank you.

Happy 2006 to you!

I discovered your portable apps while browsing for software earlier this year. I just wish I'd known about them sooner!! I'm a trainer, always on the road, and always using someone else's computer, and having all my stuff running from my flash drive is so convenient !!

Thanks for your great work. Keep it up Smile

Where is the link for the download of 2.0.1?? I went to the download link and only found the older version......If John could post it that would be awesome!!!!

also John thanks again for your work in updating these apps........

Uhh, Simeon, the link you have for 2.0.1 does not appear to work. It goes to SourceForge, but nothing downloads. Looks like it's been taken off the server.
