Psychiatry is only partially correct when he states that "it is sad that [PageSender] is no longer being updated or sold."
While developer Smile abandoned further development and support of PageSender at Snow Leopard, you can fortunately still buy PageSender 4.6 and run a licensed copy under Snow Leopard. Through intense (and fortuitous) Google searching, I managed to come across a site that still sells PageSender 4.6.
Here are the links that took me to the page where I could buy PageSender:
Clicking on the “Buy Now $39.95” PageSender button takes you to:
After completing the order, I got an email directly from Smile Support (email@example.com) which included a serial number, along with a link to download the software. The download link turned out to be invalid, so I contacted Smile Support by email to ask them to either update the link in their confirmatory email, or to send me a direct link to download the program itself.
Fortunately, MacUpdate still maintains a valid link with which to down PageSender, so I am covered in regards to obtaining a disk image of the application with which to install it. But it might be helpful to MacUpdate members if MacUpdate administrators also include the links where the program can still be purchased, instead of mentioning only that the program has been discontinued, with the implication that it can no be bought.
My buying experience proves that one can still buy PageSender, although neither the developer nor MacUpdate (yet) makes it easy to do so.
Let's hope that both websites do so from this point on. I told Smile that there is still a market for this software, since nothing better has come along to replace it, nor is anything likely ever to be develop to replace it, now that faxing has been so deprecated as a viable communications medium on Mac computers. Yet, there is a need for faxing, and that need is not likely to disappear in the immediate future, so there will always be a need to use fax in certain situations, provided one is willing to use legacy software, legacy hardware, and legacy techniques to get the job done.
I could always put my Global Village Teleport Gold and Teleport Gold II modems into service with my Mac II si or my PowerTowerPro clones, but I'd prefer to let those pre-Mac OS X collectibles rest in the attic, while I employ some variant of the Mac OS X to do my faxing.
Thanks to PageSender, which I have yet to test out but have purchased based on universally positive recommendations here and elsewhere, I hope to be able to implement broadcast faxing merely by booting up into a previous Mac OS X version, namely Snow Leopard. Sounds good to me!
