PuTTY: Thank you!

I want to thank John for creating a PortableApp for PuTTY!

When I donated money to PortableApps (which I encourage all users of this wonderful service to do), John emailed me back personally. He thanked me for my donation, and asked if there was any particular improvement or app I would like to see. My only request was a Portable version of PuTTY.

Writing security code is difficult, and previous attempts to make PuTTY portable (in particular, portaPuTTY) modify the source. This makes me nervous, as I am not a programmer and I worry about what else may be modified.

PortableApps work differently, by wrapping the executable and running code before and after the main executable. By not modifying the source, the responsibility for security remains in the hands of the author(s), where it belongs.

Thanks again!

Snail-mail?

Is there a postal address for making contributions? I dislike paper trails in real life, as well as in software....

snail-mail donations!

John Haller:

Ditto! I have never been able to find an address on this site, either. If you could either e-mail me, OR post it on your site it would be great.

Thanks!

Agreed

I'd send money by mail if it was possible. But I think you're gonna get a lot of spam if you post a mailing address, and you'd have to use an address other than your home as well. So I really don't think it's too possible.

Well,

I have his home address written down somewhere, but I'm not sure he'd want me giving that out Biggrin
I'm fairly sure there's a PO Box address available from the Whois information for this site. You could send it to that.

Thanks - PuTTY Portable

This morning I had to borrow a laptop and connect to the console port on a Cisco switch. HyperTerminal needed minor setup and afterwards was giving me minor headaches. I switched to PuTTY Portable and selected the serial connection (no further setup). It worked perfectly.

Yes, thank you!

I also very much appreciate all of this portableapps.com software; especially putty, filezilla, firefox, thunderbird, and gimp.

This is the beginning of a movement within the windows world I believe. Since discovering portableapps.com a couple months back I've told several friends about it and they are big fans now as well. It is truly a great concept; too bad that it is only gaining steam within windows now, I think that mac stuff has pretty much always been portable.

Could this be the beginnings of the end of the windows registry? Quite possibly; the very early beginnings at least. One can only hope Wink
