Coding Spreading software links in multiple articles

The recent up and down status of the Starrsoft website brings to light something that I had tried deliberately to avoid.

Some folks have put this link in multiple scanner's pages. While it's understandable, it makes catching all the possible places to find this link a bit of a bear. This is why these kinds of links were centralized in one or two articles. That way, if Starrsoft goes completely belly up, there's very little effort in fixing this issue. If it's scattered among all the scanners (this applies to many of the GRE, RS and Whistler scanners), each scanner page must be checked. It gets kinda annoying after awhile.

So please think a little before scattering these links all over the place.....Mike
