Warm Silence Software not so silent

AWOL website worries addressed

WSS logoWarm Silence Software may have gone very silent recently, but we've learnt they haven't totally disappeared despite users' fears. Their website has been pointing at a now seemingly defunct demon.co.uk address for a while now, but we're assured the publishers of ImageNFS and CDROMFS haven't thrown in the towel completely.

WSS's Robin Watts said: "WSS is still around, but due to a cock up we've lost the website. At some stage it should reappear, but that would involve finding time to sort it out.

"Our bills are paid by contract work, and have been for many years.

"Most of the software we have produced has come about because we've needed or wanted it for ourselves. Having said that I use RISC OS mostly for editing and email only these days, so the odds of any new software coming out from us isn't great."

The Warm Silence Software domain name wss.co.uk isn't due to expire until October this year. In the meantime, you can still contact them by email. WSS's software library is here, although some packages have reverted back to their original authors - including CDBurn and Cabriolet.

If WSS fancy getting active again, how about seeing if any developers are interested in improving Win95FS or Lanman98FS.

I managed to persuade WSS to let me port them to 32bit, but dont have time to do anything else at the moment. In particular people have been asled for improvements to Lanman98's timeout handling, and password encryption support could also be looked at.

There is also a serious opportunity to convert Win95FS from an image to a full filesystem so its not limited 2GB partitions, and could therefor make full use of USB attached hard drives and larger flash storage.
