Re: Autoplus to help install codecs,flash etc...

Yes, I too am sorry that such a useful utility as Autoplus will no longer be available. I would also like to challenge those who have found it useful but have not supported DangerMouse's efforts to do so. Perhaps if enough others step up, the site can be kept alive. (I would not make the challenge if I had not already given toward support).

at Dangermouse: How much is the hosting fee for the web site?

Re: Autoplus to help install codecs,flash etc...

Sadly, just monetary support many not be enough

It still takes time and effort to keep the site running and the applications updated. If DM is having health issues, then he may not be able to continue to put the time in that it takes.

The monetary problems could probably easily be resolved with just a few donations from members here, but the other issues aren't so easily resolved

Whatever happens to his site and applications is secondary to his health, though. I sincerely hope and pray that DM makes it through his problems and comes back better than ever.

I am not going to go into any religious beliefs here (and don't wish this to start any religious debate), but I do hope that whatever your beliefs/religion, etc... that you keep DM in your thoughts and prayers/meditations/whatever, and wish him a very speedy recovery.

Re: Autoplus to help install codecs,flash etc...

I would say the most important is to keep the site active for awhile. DM wouldn't have to update the site for awhile until he is feeling better. We could all give a bit to the web hosting fee and see what happens with DM's health.

I could also host the site if that is required. But I'm probably not up to updating it up every release.

Hi ddan

Re: Autoplus to help install codecs,flash etc...

I haven't been able to contact dangermouse. But I'm still willing to host the site if that is required. Does anyone know how to contact him?

Re: Autoplus to help install codecs,flash etc...

If need be someone can use the src rpm to host a side project of it till we can get in touch with Dave (A.K.A Dangermouse)

I have worked closely with him in the past and have his personal email if you are interested in helping him out with hosting or what not send me a PM on here i can forward you his email and you can pop him out an email.

Re: Autoplus to help install codecs,flash etc...

Guys, I share your concern and wishes that Dave's health improves and perhaps he'll take us up on our offers sometime in the future, but we must respect his decision to call a halt for now.

Easylife is a fine alternative and I'm sure Duli can use our support in his efforts as well.

Re: Autoplus to help install codecs,flash etc...

Ok ok ok, since Dave had asked me to have a look at it (6months+ ago), i will do so within the next 2-4 weeks.
As i just recently learned how to 'handle' src.rpm files (2 weeks ago), i could not have done earlier anyway.
And since i do have to maintain my own live as priority 1, there are some things i need to be cleared and done before i can fokus on something new.

Dave if you read this, hope you get healthy soon again!

EDIT:
This said, someone who uses his package, please share a summarized list of what needs to be done/fixed/added.
I'm not using it, so i dont know whats broken

What do you mean it's gone? I just downloaded Autoplus from it just a few minutes ago. It sure worked for me.

Interesting. It's still working fine here. I can go to any page on the site without a problem. Probably the DNS changes to take the site down just haven''t propagated here yet.
