As I was fiddling about with Artisteer I thought I would visit its site and see what it is up to. It seems to be, if not abandoned, at least left to fend for itself for a while.

Purchases and updates are still available, and you get two for the price of one, with another product, Themler, included.

You buy the product and get one year of free upgrades. I put in my Licence number and checked the pricing. I could get a year of upgrades for $25, but the good news is the upgrade I am entitled to – and this is a nifty feature they have where they show you and give downloads to what you are entitled to – goes to V4. I bought it at V2 and upgraded to V3, which is the one I am using now.

So, downloading and installing V4 gives me an upgrade I should have looked for in 2012. I have downloaded and will upgrade and have a look at the new version sometime today.

They’ve been silent the past couple of years but I expect it still sells; it is a good and easy to use program. Plus I think they’ve shifted emphasis a little to the new program, Themler.

It’s pretty good of them to give a year of updates irrespective of version number; most companies give you point releases for free but upgrades required for major versions. This means even though I bought version 3 I am entitled to download and use version 4, which, as mentioned, is pretty nifty of them.

With the long absence of information, seemingly from 2015, though I haven’t checked the forums, it’s sad to say Artisteer looks like another brilliant product that is too good for the world.

Sunday, like most other Sundays

It’s nice and sunny outside but I’m not going to get fooled twice. So like most Scots I will sit and eye the sun suspiciously.

I think I’ll have a late, and very unhealthy (:P) breakfast then have a glance at those books I bought. I dipped in and out of the non fiction book I bought, about the Dead Sea Scrolls, and it contained a lot of ‘fragments’. I know they have to have content, and put things in for completion, but seriously, what is the point of translating and printing one sentence? And even then some of those aren’t complete sentences. ¬†Madness.

Oh yeah, I fiddled about with the theme for this blog. Nothing wrong with the old one, a very good theme it is. But time for a change, even if it is just change for change sake. And I have Artisteer, the program that can make WordPress themes at – literally – the click of a button. So, ten minutes or so and the blog has a face lift. And a very pretty one if a I say so myself.
