I put Sendmail Enabler up on versiontracker.com on Sunday. Around midnight, I had confirmation that it had been listed. I went to sleep and woke up to find almost a thousand downloads had occured.
To put this in perspective, there was one download of Sendmail Enabler in the first three months (by a guy called Hari). Then Google picked it up and I had a hundred downloads in one month.
When I put it up on MacUpdate, I had a thousand downloads in one week. Finally, on Version Tracker, I get a thousand downloads in 12 hours. (At last count, it was 1553 at Version Tracker vs 1212 at MacUpdate).
I'm hooked. I'm hard at work porting our accounting system from 4D to Cocoa using Java and MySQL. There seems to be a shortage of accounting/personal finance management software for the Mac. Could this take off, too? It'll be fun to find out.
