found Stellarium archives

As I continue to cleanup the computer drives, mostly of my photographs and videos, I stumbled across a bunch of Stellarium executables.

I've usually kept them around thinking that if a new version didn't work I'd be able to roll back. And if it worked well, I could copy the EXE to other computers through the SOHO network. Today though it become clear that these were taking up a lot of space. My first thought was to drop them into a ZIP. But then I wondered if they were stored online... If old downloads are easy to get to, if they went back a few versions, then I wouldn't need to store them.

A quick search revealed that, in fact, every version of Stellarium is available at Source Forge, in the project files area. Great. I'm not a warehouse.
