I going to ask a really mean, and serious question: About a year ago I created a fanastic slew of conversion utilities to add to the OnlineConversion Site, much like the Temperature Converter Robert created, perhaps better. But when I suggested it to BlueSparks Network (for free--I never charge), they never replied and here a year later they come out with their 'own software'. Did they just copy my idea without my permission and change a few things(I did after all copyright my programs)? Or did they just not want my 'outside help'? ???

I started OnlineConversion many years ago, prior to 1996. I doubt anyone can say I copied them, since I believe I was the first on the web.
I try to respond to all emails I receive. If I did not respond to yours, it was most likely that I thought it spam. I recieve alot of email every day, and usually depend on my spam filters to stop most of it. Sometimes the spam filters remove valid email. Try sending it again.
Also, I have received hundreds of requests to distribute conversion software, there are alot of conversion programs out there. I decline all these offers. The main reason being I will be releasing my own software, which is an obvious next step for me, as the content of the site proves.
My temperature converter program is a 100% original creation. I also believe it has unique features compared to other temperature converters.
While I am sorry I will not be able to distribute your software, I do welcome your email and will try harder to make sure it is not overlooked.

Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you or anything, I just wanted to help you.

No offense taken. And sorry if I did not respond to your email, just resend it and I'll keep an eye out for it.
Though I gathered from your message it is actual PC software you are trying to distribute.
