Thank you for the link!

I remember saw that, but couldn't find it...

Mea culpa:

Don’t… use blog posts as the only way to find and download the product.

Puh-leeze for the love of all that is good and usable do not do this.
The last thing I need to do when I want something is search your blog

speak for myself, but I know I’m not alone in this one. This very
mistake is what prompted me to write this thing.
