<a href="http://www.metalshard.com/">http://www.metalshard.com/</a><br /><br />MetalShard recently made the strategic turn based war game, <a href="http://www.metalshard.com/pocketwar/index.html">Pocket War</a>, available. While developing the game they used a Pocket PC application called <a href="http://www.metalshard.com/devtracker/index.html">Dev Tracker</a>, to "keep up with the changes that were constantly being made to Pocket War". Now, MetalShard makes Dev Tracker available under both shareware and commercial terms. You can download and/or buy Dev Tracker from <a href="https://www.handango.com/PlatformProductDetail.jsp?siteId=311&catalog=0&sectionId=0&productType=2&platformId=2&productId=27577">Handango</a>.<br /><br /><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/devtracker.gif" />

I went to the Web page indicated, and found all of the Dev Tracker links on that page were bad (the ones in the middle of the page, not the links at the top).

Here is an example of one broken link:


Even changing the "//download.html" to "/download.html" didn't work.

It amazes me when a company has a broken link within their own site, and makes me wonder about their overall quality control.

On the positive side, if you go to their Download section, they also seem to have a PC version of Dev Tracker. Registration costs $9.95.

I just ran through and checked all of my links again and they all seem ok. Its possible that you caught me in the middle of a site change but I didn't make any changes at 1 am last night.

I am very careful to check all of my links, especially the download ones.

The link that you should have gone to was http://www.metalshard.com/download.html which is the same link as clicking download on the menu across the top.

There might be some internal vs external firewall thing going on so I will have a couple of people check from the outside.

Sorry for any problems this might have caused.
