Hi Marty,
First off, thanks for your help on getting me squared away. It was really appreciated.

About the updates. Why not put your customers on a mailing list, upload the files to your site, then e-mail the link to the files in one e-mail that gets sent out to everyone?

That's what I'd like to do, but I'd rather not just leave the files open to the public.

In the end I'd like to have a logged download system, so I can see who is downloading and when.  That way if someone mistakenly gives away the file location, I'm not giving away free access to my scripts.

Unfortunately, there isn't a ready-made system for that sort of thing available right now, so I'll either have to create my own, or look for one in places I haven't tried yet.

Marty,
how about creating a secure area that requires a signon, possibly using email addresses, since you already have that information for the registered owners of your product.

I imagine I'll figure it out over the next week or two.  I'm considering creating a software distribution system from scratch.  If I can't find one, maybe there's a market for one.

This is how these things get started, right?
