Related question first- can I direct PMPC to check for and update portable apps in a specific directory? (and be able to specify download path for portable apps would be great!)
While the desktop /PortableApps folder creation is nice I do move them to my /PORT directory afterwards, usually in individual folders there or combined with like apps.

which brings me to this weird behavior noticed today, after a cancelled update yesterday in which half the portables I selected to d/l were stopped before completing. Giving it another attempt today I went back into log to see what skipped yesterday

regarding the above, I did finally notice the folder icon for portable apps catagory and see how to change download path there, haven't tested if it will update the apps I placed there earlier though.. If not, consider this a feature request, for sure   :o

another follow up to part 1, after setting PMPC to new portable apps directory (which I overlooked how to do initially) I see that PMPC does check the new directory for portables in there and downloads updated apps as appropriate.

Second part of post about the wierd only downloading one at a time for portables also seems to have resolved as updates this morning show.
