Connectify out in the World.

To my surprise, it turns out that I can do something right!  Yesterday, my daughter returned from getting her hair cut to tell me that her hairdresser is using Connectify on her Windows 7 laptop to share her Internet.  So that's nice to see real, hip people using our software.

Speaking of people using our software, two weeks back, we decided to stop hosting the Connectify installer on our site, and to move it to trusted download sites.  This means you can now download Connectify from CNET's download.com or PCWorld's download site (they have a nice editorial review of the software as well). 

There are two reasons that we did this, one is because of the trust factor: both sites virus and malware check the software, so you know it's safe to run.  Another is because they post lists of how many downloads different software packages are getting.  This way you can see for yourself that Connectify is the #1 download in Wireless Networking Software and the #3 download in Networking Software.

That's exciting stuff for us.  Thank you to all of you who are using it, and keep those stories rolling in about how you use Connectify.
