    Mangled English after too much red wine :) I really shouldn't do interviews after having a few reds.

    No, not quite.

    My spelling and grammar were a little off because I'd had a few glasses of red. Nothing more than that.

    The comments from softpedia were removed without my knowledge.

    Replied to you by PM. I'm not going to discuss issues related to Online Armor, or the Emsisoft acquisition of the product in public any further.

    Announcements have been made, explanations given and I am now moving on with the rest of my business.

    It is unfair to Christian for me to continue to 'poke my nose in' to Online Armor related affairs. He has a new team to integrate into his business, and he has a new product set to get up to speed on and big plans to make.

    I don't propose to make that harder for him by engaging in further debate.


    Mike

    Yeah, classy. Still can't let it go. Nothing like bickering CEOs.

    Yeah, everything else in that interview was fine, but that line about Comodo ... well, blame the wine.
    Sheesh.

    Clocks, you don't have to "let it go", but no more posts about it here, please. Same for anyone else.

    @ MikeNash and it's a relevant question! If we have unused licenses are they still valid and will we be able to access them via our account on the Online Armor webpage after all the changes?

    TIA,

    We don't plan to change the license system in near future. No licenses will be removed or modified.

    Now, that's interesting ...:rolleyes:

    Quote from Softpedia : Note: Some of the answers have been modified after the interview was initially published, as per the request of the two CEOs.

    This would have been GOOD information while the $ 9.95 deal was in effect . I did not touch it because I heard the whisperings and then it was official . Thanks for the late information . Blah !!:cool:

    At the suggestion of one of the involved parties, several off topic posts are now gone.

    Red wine? Hmmm... it's quite rich in anti-oxidants. Also, some say that a nip at bedtime is quite good for the heart. Give it up altogether? If you do, you might not live longer, but it will certainly SEEM longer. :p

    Meanwhile, back at the topic . . .

    how long will the OA products be going on as they are? Will the OA ++ and Premium users have their products for the time remaining or just jump to the new product?

    There are currently no plans to change the product structure in any way.

    Mike, I wish you and the Tall Emu all the best :)

    From the few talks we had I learn to know you as a man who is very open, honnest and passionned about his product. I really like that :)

    Greetz, Red.


    EDITED - Reason : Is seems that now I drank too much red wine ;)

    :) You're a man after my own heart in that regard it seems.

    I'm sure you've heard the expression before "size isn't everything" ? If Online Armor can reach it's current status with just two full time developers, and part focus of the business I think that additional resources and focus from Emsisoft could make a major difference.

    Thanks for the kind words Red (is Red Wine how you got your handle?).

    Lol :D

    Not really, Red or Rednose is my old gaming name. But how I got it, you should think about Santa and his friends :)

    Greetz, Red.

    Mike, Bellfgamin can tell, he is approaching three digits :thumb: , So I would take his advice on anti-oxidants
