About Zorbasoft
ZorbaSoft is a one-person shop. The software design, coding, maintenance, and packaging is the work of one person. The same person provides technical support, as well as web site design, development, and maintenance. The same person does this in their spare time, and holds down a full time job in addition to whatever time ZorbaSoft requires. Therefore, when the pronoun "we" is used on this site with reference to ZorbaSoft, it is the imperial "we"--"we" is not plural, nor do "we" want to be! We aim to be a cottage industry and we like it.
