Hey everyone,

I have decided to privately fund ad-free web-mirrors of fellow programmer's project sites (anything compiled with the ClickOnce feature in VS.NET)

if you have a project that you want hosted for you, you can have your project hosted for free by (subhosting by siteground)

I don't have any minimum requirements except that its non-offensive, original content, and non-profit (that means, if you charge in any way, it cannot be for purpose of proffiting). I also am looking for people interested on a collaberation of a Keyboard-Driven/Sound Responsive shell for Windows (for the visually impaired), if anyone is interested in either of these let me know and write me at or All of us at PE say: Pinvokers, Keep up the good Wiki!! and thanks to the staff for having such a wonderful site

- Gabriel Sharp web admin, project leader, sub-hosted publishing liason

- Alisha Baldonieri graphics team leader, marketing and publications coordinator
