Shadowcraft was formed sometime in 1995 with the hope of facilitating the programming and distribution of our releases. Today, almost 2 years later we are still memberless, but that doesn't stop us from releasing some darn good utilities. Enjoy the site,

I require absolutely NO registration for my programs. I see no reason why ANY author should charge registration for something so small. Yes, you run it everyday, whooppie who da day. Registration spoils the fun, and also makes many people who can't program go broke from paying registrations to simple programs. ANY author who charges for software similar to mine should go jump off a cliff. If I can program equivalent programs, I will. Payment is for those who are greedy. See, I started off programming this for my use only, and it eventually made it's way to be released. So, if I've already gotten the return I originally expected, why should I charge?

This is not to say I don't agree with registering software. I do; if the author has put a lot of time and effort into the program and the registration is reasonable. I've made a sincere promise to myself that no program of mine that is simple will require registration. I've also made a promise to myself that if I do plan to charge registration, it will always be cheap and affordable, paying less for quality is my concept.

I'm not meaning to direct this at any specific person. I have however looked at many programs in the past and just recently, that are good programs, but ruined by greedy programmers. Leave the cheating of people to the corrupt politicians (not saying that all politicians are ;) and let normal computer users enjoy a hobby that is already expensive enough!

So, to any author who charges for simple software, including simple editors etc, my suggestion is STOP asking for registration. I do this as a hobby, it's fun, but it's better to know that people like my program and use it, rather then having people going 'MY GOD $15 DOLLARS FOR A MASTER FILE LIST GENERATOR?' .. Lame, honest to goodness, lame. Greed goes beyond that of just asking for money, I wouldn't mind so much if it was something that a lot of work was put into, or even if the support was absolutly great .. But I see people just charging for something really simple, going 'Send me $10 for the userlist generator' .. gimme a break people, do you absolutely feel you deserve recognition for your work? If you do, then the gratitude of others should be enough to overpower your greed.

So, again, my programs are FREE of charge. Absolutely no money down, no payment .. ever. If you really want to send me something, umm, a nice little message saying 'I like your program, and I use it all the time' is all I really need to make my day.
