    Site down

    I try to do my best to give access and support
    to various tools I made for free,
    I tried also by many ways to obtain the respect
    of a basic rule, that says simply,
    do not distribute them by yourself,
    but Mr 'Soth' didn't care,
    http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=107604

    My site is down.

    I think Soth might have been over eager to help someone and didn't think of reading the license.

    I hope the site gets back online soon!!

    It will be missed, for sure.

    I hope you will do find a way to manage the situation without such drastic measures. It would be a pity if that could not be the case.

    Anyway, thanks for all your efforts and great tools.
    Salut!,

    I don't get it ... Soth replied and removed the content, so why are you closing your website ? Isn't this a bit excessive ?

    There are counter-measures you can use to prevent direct linking to your content, this would be more appropriate imho. I can help you with that if you need such protection, as long as you have PHP available on your server.

    You're one of the most active and respected plugin dev, so whatever your decision is, consider that your dedication and your hard work will be missed.

    Wow sorry to read that Denis. I don't think Soth meant anything by it, someone was just having difficulty with the downloaded plugin archive, which was possibly corrupt, as I also have a perfectly working version of the nodes version of your Rman plugin.

    I hope that you can resolve the dispute, as your nodes are an invaluable resource for the community I cannot imagine not having!

    sorry Denis, ... really sorry to read that...
    thank you for your magnific plugins and support here!
    if your plugins wouldn't exist, many things we generate today, simply would not be POSSIBLE!
    so thank you, at least, for those we still have and use today!


    ... and now; what will happen to LW ?!

    Sounds to me like he was looking for a "get out clause" for supporting his products, and soth provided him with one.
    uh wha?

    This simply can't be allowed to happen, Denis, what can we all do to bring you back?

    Your contribution to the LightWave community has been nothing short of legendary. I don't think Soth meant any harm.

    But if Skonk is right, it is a HUGE loss of talent.

    I too hope you reconsider, but if you have decided to move, my best wishes for your future endeavors, and thanks for all your hard work. We all will miss you.

    Regards
    Matt
