It's timing out, but I don't see any message about not being available or being pulled?

That's what I meant by timing out. ;-)


In my mind, it would be easier to remove or replace the link with a page that says NO, rather than do something that times out.
Feels more like a technical glitch to me, but who knows...

its possible
but so is them taking it down due to legal reasons

Yes, but if you were running a company and got a cease and desist, wouldn't you just remove the link to order and place a notice?
When I try to buy "FreeSpace" on their site, it does the same thing, and I don't think Amiga Inc told them to stop selling FreeSpace?

Looks like a problem between their domain and their payment processor https://secure.2checkout.com
Maybe a DNS problem at the moment.

Hmmm, not sure if this thread is "News" worthy as probably just "fake news"...

Moved for now until absolutely verified that it's not just a hosting / other sinister issue.

ptyerman 19 October 2018 21:07

Seems to be a connection problem with their payment processor site, it just sits there and won't complete.
All of their online purchases are doing the same thing. So unless OS4 has been "pulled" too due to piracy or whatever else some people dream up, it's just a communication error!

gulliver 19 October 2018 21:10

Dont you understand that one of Hyperion's partners is a lawyer and can actually represent them for free if he had to?

This certainly comes from someone spreading FUD. Just dig who the the source is.

And most important, lets play a second as the devil's advocate: If you were sent a cease or desist letter that frightens you, will you make that action public?

This is ridiculous at best.

Just my two cents.

lantus360 19 October 2018 21:12

try to buy OS 4.1 or anything else. Same issue

i think this is a DNS problem and nothing more

ptyerman 19 October 2018 21:17

Seeing as no one can buy anything from Hyperion's site I don't think the problem will exist for long.
No need to be creating false news and rumours!

Chucky 19 October 2018 21:21

So can it be they simply just have some serverissues and crowd goes nuts?

gulliver 19 October 2018 21:37

Hyperion does not handle online sales themselves, they outsource it to a widely known company that provides that service to a multitude of companies, not only Hyperion.

It seems that this third party company is having temporal issues, nothing more.

Not so sure that he would be allowed to, but anyways, would you have wished to have him as your lawyer? :)

nogginthenog 19 October 2018 22:23

Maybe so many people ordered OS 3.1.4 we crashed the server :)

Daedalus 19 October 2018 22:38

The A-eon software server is also down with an account suspended message, and has been all day. Looks more like a lapsed account or something to do with their hosting (slipped through the cracks while they were all away at Amiwest perhaps?) rather than anything more serious.
