Topic tags/keywords: question resource software index magazine

Hi All,

I have a licensed copy of Woodworker’s Indexing software, which is an index to a pretty complete list of articles published through the years by various woodworking magazines. It has been updated in the past on a yearly basis for a reasonable fee.

It seems that the company has dried up. I no longer can open the old website (www.woodworkersindexing.com now opens a new website not associated with this software), cannot open the software without the old website access, and my emails go unanswered. The program was written by Mr. William (Will) Mikus of Ridley Park, PA. Does anyone know of his location/email address or have information concerning the planned future of the program? If the company has gone under, I would be interested in resurrecting and continuing the publication of the index.

Thanks for your help,
jayelton

Hey jayelton,

Any luck finding access to your software? or on continuing the publication of the article index?

Mark,

I didn’t ever get anywhere on locating the publisher – but oddly enough, the software will run at times. At other times it brings up an error message about the server not being available.

I have begun using another index. It is web-based and much less expensive – $9.95 for 3 years access. The drawback is that it only goes back to about 1998. However, it is current with mags coming out now – not possible with Woodworker’s guide Index, since they are not publishing any more.

Here is the link for the web-based index: Woodworking Magazine Index
