Well it’s a bit more than a Theme. It’s more of an App.
That makes it less likely that you’ll have a problem. A designer is more likely to have 10 clients wanting a business/portfolio site than a very specific template like yours.
Fillerspace your wasting 2 bucks buddy, you should use Dropbox 2GB – 5GB free and is wonderful!
I’ve been hosted at Rackspace for years so I trust Rackspace (who owns JungleDisk) more than a 2 year old company. That peace of mind is worth $24 a year.
The design is very cliean…I think it will be very popular! I’d put some anti-aliasing on those fonts in the H2 headers near the bottom, and the italics in the footer. And the colors for the alternate themes don’t really work for me.
I don’t think you can stop people from doing that any more than the record companies can stop people from downloading MP3 ’s or Adobe can stop people from pirating Photoshop. You just have to count on the fact that there are enough honest people out there willing to pay for your product.
Realistically, I don’t think you have to worry about one person using your theme 1000 times, because if he’s a web designer, his portfolio would look pretty boring! Besides, if he has a 1000 clients, he could just buy a different template for each one and pass the charges along to them.
I signed up when there was only one plan, but now I guess it is called the Personal plan for $2/mo plus storage fees ($0.15/GB I think). I only back up the my documents folder from my laptop (where all my project files are…Everything else – tv shows, movies, and mp3s – is backed up locally on 2 external hard drives.), just in case the laptop is lost, damaged, or stolen, so it is about 700MB. My bill is $2.09 each month. It looks like now they are including the first 5 GB free with the $2 plan. Definitely worth the price, considering other services like Mozy charge $5/mo to start.
Maybe it’s possible for you to buy your own files! Don’t know if that is even possible, but if it were, in theory you would get 40-70% back, plus the portion that Envato keeps would certainly be less than what you could earn in interest over the next month if you got the payout now instead of next month.
I use JungleDisk. Works great for automatic backups, and you can access it over the web.
What is giving the error? Cron? or PHP ? Do you have shell access? Try to su to the user cron runs as and run the command from the command line (php -q /path-to-file/mtyest.php) and see what the output is. It could be that crons run as a different user (not root) who doesn’t have execute access in the directory where the PHP script is. Try to test id by chmod-ing the script to 777 temporarily.
They were announced this year, but they will likely be released next year
