in thread nms - As Recommended By Matt Wright

On his site, Matt says:

My interests and activies have moved on, however, and I just have not found the time to update all of my scripts. One of the major reasons for this is that they work for many people. For this reason, I will continue to provide them to the public, but am also pleased to make you aware of well-coded alternatives. (my emphasis)

Also, let's not forget that Matt makes money out of the script archive.

    Ah yes... I had not thought about the money aspect. In delving deeper, there doesn't appear to be a lot of ads on his site so I wonder how much money he is making. In fact, the only ad I saw was the banner for his host on the front page. How

    As for "they work for many people", I still say that he would better serve these people if he pointed them first to the more secure, actively maintained versions.

    Time passes... And after a few minutes of surfing his site, I see that he does indeed have a link to the nms version for any relevant scripts. So all I could ask for now if more prominent placement of said links. But hey, I shouldn't complain right? At least he is giving people the option is they read the text. :-)
