WTF is up with this?

[link removed by moderator]

Sure as heck isn't official, or authorized by the creator. So, what exactly is it?

Looks practically unused... I wonder how old it is? Probably very new I would guess.

I wonder who is really running this site? The pages listed for cheap blank media in Canada are hilarious though! I've never seen effectuality.ca called *cheap* for blank media before.... especially since their prices are usually 5x to 10x the retail price! I mean, they advertise the price per unit for 1,000pcs of Ritek 4x DVD-Rs to be $1.254ea CAD! :o

Ah yes... this website. Someone pointed it out to me late last week. I still don't know if the guy that runs it is actually trying to do some good.. or just make a few bucks off of the program. From what I've hard, Karr isn't too happy with the whole thing. As it is, I've already had to ask the guy not to link directly to the files on our website.

Yes, and um, it might be better if we didn't have people posting links to the website on public forums. That just increases traffic.
I can't help feeling that if one were legitimate, and not just trying to make money off someone else's work, he might go through the author directly in the first place, instead of going behind his back. It's not like the author's name and contact info is not obvious in the program.

Still, it's a nice web site, I hope they can work something out that benefits all parties.

Any site that has a page with instructions on how to edit your HOSTS file so that it will show advertisements is on my ignore list. I really wish they would've gone about making the site the correct way.

Thank god Adblock blocked all of the ads. I've never seen anything like this:
