In Topic: First RM8 Blog Entry

04 October 2019 - 06:53 PM

Five installations on the Blog between September 2 and September 23, 21 days/5 = average time between postings of 4.2 days. However, it has been eleven days since the last posting... Hmm, nothing new to show?

Are your virus definitions current?   Have you run an anti-malware program?

If I may say so, I think it's an error to lay one's frustrations on the heads of small specialized software companies. I know nothing of the economics of software publishing, but it's clear that if one wants to hire a full-time programmer at, say, $50,000 per annum, that one has to sell 1000 copies of a $50 software package every year just to pay the programmer alone -- and one hasn't even begun to pay for overhead, taxes, food for the family, a roof over one's head, and the services of a charming and technically adept person who has to write "confirming this is on the enhancement request list" on the forum, probably more often than she cares to.

 

 

Lack of a profitable business model is not an excuse for mediocrity.

RM's long-standing business model has been to introduce a little flash and ask for cash.  Combine that with the uber-insulting "confirming this is on the enhancement request list" and you know exactly what Bruze Buzbee thinks of the customer base that has supported him for 30+ years.  I learned long ago not to be taken in by his flashy baubles and meaningless promises.
