It's new and blue

Welcome to my new site. It's blue, new and built for you.

The new www.chrisdunn.name is now live and provides access to all my software and news on all device types. 

The old site (right) has now been replaced by my new, improved site and my former mobile site has now been disabled. Upgrades to the shop and new features for members will be coming soon. 

There have been some minor changes to links for various pages and services. Apologies for anyone who has discovered any problems or issues and these are being resolved in real time with all failed links automatically reported so these can be repaired rapidly. Thank you to all my visitors in the last 48 hours who have already identified a number of these.

I hope you love the new look and the new menus allow you to find what you are looking for faster and easier than ever before. As always I love hearing feedback from my visitors so email me or add a comment if you have any suggestions or issues.



A site for the future

As my website celebrates 16 years of being online in 2013 it is time again for a change. As the technology that supports my site nears the end of life I am currently in the process of standardising my site in preparation of an upgrade to a new dynamic website with built in support for desktops, tablets and mobile devices.

You may have already noticed a number of changes including improved URLs and Search Engine Optimisation, cleaner pages, new download sections, the removal of the download mirror and much much more.

Some of these items such as my download mirror have been in operation with only interface updates and unchanged URLs for nearly 10 years so making these kind of changes is a BIG deal and requires a lot of work to ensure my faithful software users and affiliates can still find me and my software online. All of these changes are designed to ensure the next upgrade will be seamless so you can still find your favourite articles and software in the new improved format.

Over the coming weeks some features may go (sorry, this will mainly affect members) in preparation for the upgrade which will result in a totally overhauled new site with heaps of brand new exciting features (especially for members). It will all be worth it and I apologise for any inconvenience as these changes occur. As always contact me with any problems or suggestions.


New email, same .name

As part of the ongoing upgrades to my site and the changes to my new www.chrisdunn.name I have now updated and migrated my email to Outlook.com.

This means I have a new This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. email address to match my new website address. All my existing email addresses will still work although I will phase these out slowly over time. As always, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions regarding my software let me know as I am always happy to help.
