To start; I apologize for all the changes and missing programs. We’ve updated the download pages and all our software is listed now with direct download links. Everybody was probably wondering what is going on with Datum / Rizonesoft. I do understand that it looks like we cannot make up our minds about what web address we like or the name of the company. I think it is time I give all a proper explanation and share with you the future plans. I will ask that you do not stop supporting us and thank you for all your devoted support in the past.
Now for the explanation:
I started Rizone as a pet project to publish my creations and share it with the public. After discovering a software application available on the internet with the name Rizone, I desided to change my company to Rizonesoft and naturally the domain name was changed accordingly. Rizonesoft.com became extremely popular and it became a full time job. To accommodate the growth and work load, I decided to take on a partner. Together we decided to change the name to Datum and move towards computer forensics and PC repairs. All I can say is that partnerships are never a good idea. The partnership broke up and personally did not like the Datum-forensics.com domain name that much, changed it to Datumza.com and tried hundreds of solutions to fund the company.
Ever since Rizonesoft.com, the company was running in the red permanently. All this corporate politics has kept me from doing what I love, programming! You have to keep in mind that I never want to sell my software, so everything will always be free, no matter what. Now finally, we got some sponsors and can get back on track, however; at the moment, everything is a mess. We lost almost all credibility and our original business plan is obsolete, but not all is lost.
Following is that changes that will occur and hopefully make Datum / Rizonesoft even more popular:
Firstly, we are moving away from the WordPress platform. Datum is going to change into the holding company for all other online projects. All the freeware will go back to Rizonesoft.com and will remain there indefinitely. Below is a list of the websites that will fall under the Datum group and the respective launch dates:
|Earningguard.com||All about making money on the internet. This will be our cash flow wesite. Please support us by visiting Earningguard.com and signing up for some of the free online earning solutions.||1-June-2013|
|Rizonesoft.com||Does this one really need an introduction. All our freeware will be listed here. All direct download links with no advertising on the download links.||1-August-2013|
|A site for all our free PHP Scripts and application skins.||1-September-2013|
|A SEO (Search Engine Optimization) site. Home of our SEO KiT which is still in development.||1-Oktober-2013|
|Cyberwebdirectory.com||This will be the home of our free online Directory and PHPLd template (in development).||1-November-2013|
|Datumza.com||The home of the Datum group. Will list all the sites above.||1-December-2013|
As a final note, we would like to assure you that we will always be around creating freeware and the only way we will make it is if everybody keep on supporting us and using our freeware.
