Now, that's better...

Our friends in the USA will recognize that statement as coming from an advertisement for one of our favorite eateries.  In the SPOCS world, though, it means the main player finally realized how screwy the setup over on SourceForge was.
I had occasion to want to download a copy of SPOCS from somewhere else.  So, I went over to the SPOCS site on Sourceforge, and realized...this is really clunky!  I then created a SOURCE folder, and put all the source files in it.  Then I created a .ZIP (later they will be .TAR) file of SPOCS, and uploaded it to SourceForge.  Now you can do ONE download, and get SPOCS, for your very own.  Sorry for any problems the old arrangement may have caused.
On the SPOCS development front...to quote Dr. Frankenstein, "It's alive!"  I am testing the new scanner with the new DR1 driver module.  The architecture has changed radically.  It should result in shortening SPOCS update times.  There is a lot to do, but after the DR1 module is debugged, all other modules will follow the same pattern.  There will be differences, of course.  We will get to that later on.
