SoftLocate.com has been temporarily closed down

When I set up SoftLocate.com my hope was that I could develop a fully automated shareware application listing site that would take no maintenance. Unfortunately the PAD file repository that it uses to find out about updates and releases of shareware has become filled with spam listings, and also the site is receiving very few visits. I have decided to take the listings off-line for now, and plan to eventually replace them with a much smaller, carefully edited shareware, freeware and open source software directory.
