September 14, 2009 NDIS.com Under Reconstruction

NDIS.com has been neglected so long (due to over work..) that it has degenerated to the point of being almost useless. I will spend some time improving the site (due to under work...).

The site will basically be wiped clean and reorganized. Articles that still have value will be retained and as time permits I will be adding several new articles I have been meaning to put together.

Please be patient and return from time-to-time to see what's new.

December 18, 2002 PCAUSA Acquires NDIS.COM Domain

PCAUSA has acquired the NDIS.COM domain. We intend to use this new domain name to organize and publish information of specific interest to NDIS software developers.

Most of the PCAUSA NDIS developer's resource information will be moved from www.pcausa.com and www.rawether.net to one central location - www.ndis.com.

During the move we plan to review and update the existing NDIS developer resource information - as well as add new information.
