Tucows retires its downloads

๐Ÿ•“๏ธŽ - 2021-01-24

Oh no, Tucows are closing down their venerable download service - where are all the Windows 98 users going to download their renamed and trojaned versions of GIMP from now?!

I usually recoil slightly with surprise when I run whois on a domain and see Tucows as the registrar, but apparently they do many other things than distribute questionable installers for software surrounded by heaps of dodgy adverts.
