From what I can see from emails I received and the traffic increase oldversion.com was on BBC news today, if anyone noticed the site from BBC please post here and describe the manner in which it was mentioned..i'm always interested about the media mentions of OldVersion.com

Thanks..

I found this site courtesy of the BBC last year. There is a programme called "Clickonline" and a reporter recommends sites of interest.

I heard about this site in New Zealand on BBCWorld's Click Online show on Tuesday. BBCWorld airs during the night, all night, here and I sometimes tape Click Online which comes on at about 4:30am. This site was mentioned in a very positive way, basically just saying what is said on your start page - that old versions can be better and/or sometimes the only ones compatible with older systems. It interested me as a collector of old versions myself, so I came online immediately and checked it out! I am quite impressed but I expected it to be a bit more comprehensive from the publicity it got and it does seem to suffer from the need to constantly edit out warez talk etc. I would suggest the board needs to be more properly moderated. But good work, I'll be back!
