Sorry it took so long but now we have a nice clean 64-bit centOS etc.
Enjoy!

I had noticed that spywareinfo.com had gone down some time ago. Since I wasn't overly active and just maintained the link for my students, I removed it from my website.

Now I see you are back but have lost the domain.

What happened?

From the referenced topics:

We lost the spywareinfo.com domain (no one but Mike himself could have renewed the registration) ...


Since the owner, Mike Healan, disappeared completely in September 2006 ...


Too bad no one had a more direct connection with him. I see in another (not to be linked to) topic he came back for a short time but that was some time ago. I will refrain from posting to the topic I just mentioned as that would resurrect it and I'm sure he would prefer it to remain buried but I do want to add my hope that he return to actively working with this group.

He is one of the group that helped me launch my teaching website back in 2002. In fact, we used the template for his (then current) website SpywareInfo.com as the template for my forum as it would help speed development. Sadly, it seems my website is going to go away as well, I would hate to think that it had been preceded by one of its creators.

Mike, if you can read this, know that you have another ally in life, if not in the fight against Spyware (for which I am not predisposed). May you be well.

[Added]
Now that I'm aware of the problem, I have modified certain links on my website to reflect the current status here. Feel free to take a look if you like and, if such links aren't allowed, I fully expect one of the moderators or Admins to remove them.
