Xpostulate working on Win7

So, I currently have acces to a Win7 machine (you will recall that I'm a gnu/linux guy), and I've managed to get Xpostulate running on this platform.

Windows annoys the heck out of me, frankly, and I did have to make various changes to the program to make it work, but I have it working, and am posting this, now, with Xpostulate on said Win7 machine.

I will zip up a package for Windows users shortly, with installation instructions, etc., and post again.

Windows is not an operating system, I once heard. It's a virus with a graphical interface.
I trust Linux far more in delivering a real system. The rumours around windows and the options that it apparently offers for snooping US government agencies are scary.
Must add xpostulate to my linux box, thanks for reminding me!

All true, all true. I see the exact same happen on my machines. The difference in LibreOffice starts is scary.
And then to think that Linux starts a truckload of servers that winblows doesn't even have.

Hey stranger! Where can I find Xpostulate these days?

ETA: Never mind---the server is back up. It was down when I looked the other day.

ETA 2: And, the dreaded 404 is back, at least for the Linux version.

EDIT 3: Egg on my face. Thanks Github!
