* Regarding Cathy Nicoloff's involvement in this software product.
Version 3.0 of Melody Maker marked the second version that was distributed by Datagen Software Designs, the hobby programming group name that I originally released my software under. Previous versions had been developed by Cathy Nicoloff in QuickBASIC and she began version 3 from scratch in Pascal, which was developed further as a partnership between her and I.
Unfortunately, Melody Maker 3.0 was never finished during the course of our partnership and Cathy left the software to me for completion — which I eventually did after a fervent effort and large amount of work, finally releasing the software December 29th 1993 (at the time I estimated about 75% of the final product was a result of my work). Cathy's name was still included on the title screen of the application as well as the documentation.
In 2001, four years after disolving Datagen Software Designs and about seven years after completing Melody Maker myself, I released version 3.1 that fixed a major bug and introduced a few minor enhancements. Along with these changes I also removed Cathy's name from the distribution files as her involvement had long since passed and she had not made any further contributions to the project for more than seven years.
