PFS3 still belongs to Michiel. *HE* can do whatever he wants to with it.

I hate to slap you in the face with reality, but most people would actually prefer to be compensated for their hard work. Maybe more Amiga software would be made freely available if the authors/owners were paid for it to happen.

Me thinks you haven't read this thread properly. AndreasM jumped in and got Michiel's e-mail address, he tried to do an exclusive or at least a first release of an intended Aminet PD release. That's embarrassing.

Sure it's Michiel's programme, and i'm sure too a lot of Amiga interested people would gladly pay HIM and not for an AF mag issue to force the sales. Anyway, there will be an Aminet release later.

You are totally not getting what I am saying. Please read back. I am not questioning whatever this guy wants to do with his software. Once you read we can resume conversation

All it would take is for an AF CDROM subscriber to upload it somewhere where we can get at it. I would do it myself but I no longer get the CDROM (just the mag).

Ask him if he would like a donation account set up. Generally donations are better than requesting money on old software.
Or something along the model of WHDLoad?

Thumbs up

I am sure Amiga Future magazine will not allow the posting of PFS3 on Aminet. Luckily I have my own software since I bought it many years ago.

The AF magazine may neither allow nor disallow the posting of PFS3 anywhere. It's still only the original author who may do this. The original author has forbidden to publish the commercial version on Aminet. He will prepare the Aminet release when he gets the time for it. In the meanwhile he has allowed AF to put the commercial version on their magazine CD. Nothing more and nothing less.

Don't talk such bullshit. The real story is that you cut gulliver's lunch. He had organised something good for himself and the Amiga community and you couldn't help but put your unwanted nose in and try to turn things around so you benefitted from it more than anyone else.

If you're going to be a prick at least have the balls to admit what you've done.
