Since D_Hall's site is down indefinitely, could we get GGDT and HGDT available for download on spudfiles? Perhaps linked to on the wiki page? First of all, would D_Hall object to this?

It really is an invaluable tool for the serious hobbyist and it would be a shame not to have this resource easily obtainable.

I think D_Hall and PCGUY may already be talking about doing this but I have not heard anything officially about it, keep your fingers crossed that it comes to be.
Look if you must.

I love HGDT. It would be great to have it hosted here.

Yes, the plan is to have both packages hosted here. I've talked to PCGuy. He's agreed. I just need to package everything up so that it'll go through email for him.

Awesome! HGDT is great, but what I'd really like is to borrow Mr. Hall's brain for a weekend or so. Maybe if I stick an RJ45 in my ear PCGUY can work out the rest and connect us up?

Maybe one of these days we can meet up and shoot the breeze and do some shooting.

I am relativity new to spud guns (I have built 2 pneumatic cannons without any real software) and I am trying to download HGDT and GGDT so i can build a long range (stationary) egg cannon. I tried to download them and they both gave the same error message, "Run-time error '339': Component 'comdlg.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." There was a file named COMDLG.OCX in the folder so i renamed it comdlg.ocx and that didn't fix it. Any ideas on how to fix this?

I figured it out. All I had to do was run it as administrator. Sorry if you reply to run it as and administrator before this post is posted as I am new and a moderator will have to approve my message.

Yeah, sorry about that. I wrote them a long time ago using software that was old even then. The long story short is that the security protocols common today didn't exist when I wrote 'em. As a result, current versions of Windows view it with suspicion...
