Merry Christmas!

It’s a few hours away for me, but for some others it’s already here. Merry Christmas!

If I could, I would release TWC, but it isn’t ready, and as a matter of fact I haven’t even seen the theme yet.

Here’s a bit of a preview, showing the current staff lineup.

Also, as my gift to the readers of my blog (finally paid off, huh?), in absence of the TWC release I was hoping for, here’s the echoShell 2.0 source code.

Considering I never really started work on eS2, it isn’t much different from the final 1.0 (in fact it actually still displays itself as 1.0).

Also, I neglected to remove the expiration date. That is left as an exercise for the reader.

Hint: Look in Options.vb for the strings ReleaseStatus and ExpirationDate.

I also neglected to remove the product key requirement.

It will produce an annoying trial nag screen, but set TrialStatus to Trial and VLK to VLK.

If you know what you’re doing, go ahead and disable product keys and activation in a more thorough manner.

Nevertheless, enjoy!

Most of the other code written by me.

Anyone I’ve missed should be listed in the about box.

I’m not releasing this under any specific license. Just don’t say you wrote code/designed graphics that you didn’t.

Feel free to sell your derivative works or do whatever you want with it.

I haven’t touched the code in months, so obviously, most of the comments as to who can see what code and whatnot don’t apply anymore.

    Its funny because I am currently studying the King. Partly to get more “male pes21na&#8r2o; into my writing. Then to see what makes great commercial fiction.I was one degree of separation from Stephen King. I was taking at poetry class at Worcester State College in Massachusetts where I’m from. It was, of course, in ancient times. The prof was a frustrated author. One day he complained, “This friend of mine wrote this book called Salem’s Lot and now he’s got a movie deal.” Nobody quite knew who this friend of his was, but I never forgot that story.
