Please report any shared purchase codes to Envato. I do this when my auto-update system detects a shared purchase code, their accounts get removed rather prompty. You could also consider hypothetically tweaking the update that goes out to shared license codes, rather than blocking them (if you get my drift).

However unfortunately as per the Community Guidelines we cannot discuss piracy on the forums.

Locking this up.

Gentoo built via a beowulf cluster all the way!

haha nah, just use Ubuntu. If you don’t like the funky unity left menu thing in Ubuntu, then wipe it and install xubuntu. Xubuntu will run slightly faster than ubuntu – but the xfce “interface” is quite basic (which is better in my opinion, but some people prefer the fancy stuff).

If you want to go full fancy then grab kubuntu. It’s chock full of fancy widgets and heaps of configuration options. But could run a bit slower on old hardware.

Checkout screenshots for both. They’re pretty much the same under the hood, just look and act differently.

If anyone finds this stuff interesting, here are two years worth of stats from my email ticket system: click here. Numbers don’t quite add up due to some people buying multiple copies of items, but you get the general idea.

Currently working through some ideas to reduce support, especially for the big item (tried hiring, doesn’t work).

No problems every month for the past 5 years. This month the paypal withdrawal landed in my bank account in an hour too which was nice (rather than the usual 3 day wait).

Try buying a powered USB hub, so your keyboard/mouse/whatever are powered from a power point (rather than the computer).

Or unplug any extra stuff and just have a keyboard / mouse to see if that still is an issue.

I always think how many items could have been created in the time spent on the forums.

How long does each forum message take (reading + replying)? 3 minutes? more?

7000 comments = 350 hours of writing comments. So that’s like comparable to 43 solid 8 hour work days. Man how many items could have been created in that time. $$ heaps!
