Some you may remember from the old AA days the little piece of homebrew I tinkered together with Blitz Basic called Super Robot. I had more or less forgot about it but its still online for download. Today I got an email from the Softpedia Editorial Team. Portion below.

Anyone heard of these people?

Its been noticed by retroremakes.com too. (130 downloads with softpedia now)

If only I had spent more time on this it might have got more attention.

Speaking of malware, I'm

Speaking of malware, I'm really getting sick of free apps that try to trick you into installing some spyware/adware infested toolbar onto IE or even Firefox. It seems to be becoming a common "option" in almost every "free" program I download, and even some paid ones. Grrr...

Will Super Robot please beat them up? :)

Yes, they probably have some

Yes, they probably have some sort of testbed. Probably virtual machines to test out the software.

I reckon they must just use

I reckon they must just use some utility to trawl the net and then inspect anything they find to see if its safe (they make a big thing about marking it as malware free) and obviously they must judge if something is of any value.

Thanks Mark. I've had a few

Thanks Mark. I've had a few freeware things on my web site for ages, and every once in a while, something like this happens. I have no idea who submits them! I also got asked a few times for permission to be on a magazine cover disc, even though permission is not necessary. (I give it away under GPL, which lets anyone sell copies if they want to)
