When software come out like this that only appeals to a niche but it so well made and so powerful you know it's an act of love for the developer as well as his group of devotees. This software may not have a use for most people but it does for tons of IT professionals and computer nerds everywhere. Most people could use and appreciate this software but only real computer fans will appreciate it for what it truly is.

I'm not sure what to write because the product did not come up. There were no issues getting to site but once on site, I was confused. User experience and understanding pain points would be helpful to the web designer/developer for this site
