21st February 2019: It has come to my attention that potential subscribers have for a time been unable to pay for a subscription directly by card as opposed to through a PayPal account – PayPal had changed the settings on my account without telling me. I’ve now changed the settings back so as to allow direct card payment once again. Since I made this change, I’ve noticed a huge increase in uptake with direct card payments now proving the preferred option. I’m not sure at what point PayPal made the change, but if anyone has wanted to subscribe but were put off by the need to create/use a PayPal account, they can be assured that they can now pay directly once again.

14th February 2019: I have purchased web space until 31st March 2020 when the site will be removed from the web. All current and future subscriptions will be honoured. We remain open for business as normal until 31st March 2019 – ie both options 1 and 2 remain available until this date. Between 31st March 2019 and 31st March 2020 it will not be possible to purchase a standard annual subscription but it will be possible to purchase a DVD disc of the scripts with free online access until the site is removed in March 2020 – ie only option 2 will be available.

6th April 2018: Please note as of today our E mail address has changed to sdscripts@yandex.com (the old gmx E mail address is no longer being monitored so please update your records).

6th April 2018: We are now using SSL encryption on all of our website connections. This is to protect any personal information that could otherwise be more easily intercepted when you are logging in, and becomes a legal requirement after 25th May. This means you will in the main no longer see security warning messages when you call up pages or log in.

I hope those that have been worried or put off by the warning messages and potential security issues in the past will now be reassured. A copy of our updated Privacy Policy is available here.

1st April 2018: There has been considerable outlay recently in order to upgrade and maintain the site, plus a recent increase in postage costs. We will therefore be making a small change to our Tarriff, with all orders increasing in price by £1.

1st April 2018: Last week a technical problem cropped up with the pages loading very slowly and sometimes timing out. This turned out to be due to the web hosting company (GoDaddy) overloading their shared servers. I have therefore transferred the site to a new hosting company with the result that the site is now back up & running again at full speed, in fact a bit faster than it’s ever been.

2017: The scripts are now accessed via Google Drive (as the old system was a bit cumbersome from my end, and was starting to malfunction). With regards the new system, you don’t need a Google account nor do you need to be signed in to a Google account to access the scripts, and you can view and download etc from a range of browsers (you’re not limted to Google Chrome).
