Since the Slysoft Closed thread just got in fact closed, I'm starting this one. Hopefully it survives the mods. There was alot of valid talk in there about can anydvd continue and getting access to the current OPD. I think we'd all like just a simple reply from James or Tom whether there is hope or not. And I think that can be accomplished without breaking any non disclosure. Simply saying that the OPD is not getting released, and once the paid up hosting is done, the servers for the OPD and the forums will be shut off would sum it up. Enjoy what is available while you can so to speak. Right now we are all clinging to hope that this totally screwed up situation will resolve. If truly that ain't gonna happen, then give some closure please. The way I read some of James's posts, there is hope, but then he skips the questions on the OPD. I'd like to think what he's poured his blood sweat and tears in to would find a way to live on, especially if he just took it and went elsewhere. As he said, his employer doesn't have a bank account anymore, so he can't really object. And as long as James protects himself anonymously, it can live on. Seems there are several folks on here who want to help keep it going. So that's it. Can we all agree on that? Either slam the door or let us know it is possibly open.
