CNET Just Scared the Crap Out of Me

CNET has just killed one of my favorite web sites, Versiontracker.com (a repository of links to and reviews of Mac software). They acquired the site a couple years ago, and gave it a half-assed refresh, introducing lots of new problems (sound familiar?), and today they folded it completely into CNET Downloads. The jillions of reviews are wiped (as is my alert list, which was painstakingly built up over many many years). All that goodness, summarily flushed.

Holy crap.

Well, I'd been increasingly using competing site Macupdate.com, which works a lot better (read: at all) on my iPhone, anyway. But still.
