page 165 - Dalid is dalid.

Dalid apparently translates as "Luck/Fortune" (see trade lexicon).
This may be the Loroi version of "It is as it is".

Alvarin on the PoNaF tried to report this item, but they refused to handle the complaint itself, as he is not the IP owner...
5  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / UQM on ebay on: October 31, 2019, 10:21:47 am
Someone (Matthias) on the PoNaF forum pointed to an e-bay sale:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/123752048451

They even brand it as "MT Software Solution".

I tried reported the item, but I don't have an e-bay account, so e-bay does not let me report this item.


BTW, Matthias also cannot complete the registration procedure for this UQM forum.

Interesting, they state that only the installer and the screenshot are GNU GPL, the rest is their "protected IP"....
Which is simply not true,
MT Software Solutions is a British company...


Since under EU law they have to pay for the returns, we could massively buy the product, and return it unopened, and have ebay refund the stuff.
But as I wrote, I don't have (and don't want) an ebay account.

Looks good!

Nope, his account got hacked, and the DNS redirected elsewhere.
Should be repaired, if not the DNS is spreading correctly again.
As some of you may have noticed, the site has been down for a couple of days. Thieves compromised my account at the domain provider on Sunday and redirected the DNS somewhere else. If you can see this, then it's been fixed! If not, it may take a few days for the fixes to work their way through the system.

Also: new page: page 162.

Time for some friendly greetings in a relaxed atmosphere.

I started to wonder...


Anyway, the servers eem to be down (no DNS entry).
Maybe he's moving providers....
edit: it's back online. Possibly just a moving of servers to new IP-addresses.

page 161 is up.

Not much is happening, but Captain Obvious is on board, naming the blade a blade.

In this regard I'm also in a bad pinch:
I like this genre of games so much, and from what I've seen, SC:Origins is actually well made.
Not supporting the only mainstream game in this genre does not embolden other developers to go for it with their ideas.
 -> less UQM-style games

But sending money towards Stardock / Mr. Wardell just gives the signal "You got away with this behaviour. No lesson to be learnt here."

Furthermore:
while the settlement may define some things to be final under US-law, that's far from all the damage Stardock can do.
European courts proceedings are not bound by this settlement.
Chinese, Indian, ... court proceedings neither.
And seeing the sizes of their potential markets, the US-market pales in comparison, and remains important only because the games prices are high there and it is the home market for most developers.

On the balance, my personal situation tips the scale towards "no money for Stardock games".

And with "fascinating" you mean: hard to track, should be impossible, don't really know what could even cause it,....

Good luck finding something!

Well, the line of weekly had been broken, and this one lacks shading for now.

Anyway, looks like someone realizes he'll be sharing the accomodation...
