[REBOL] Re: AltME: Something new from our team. - How much?
From: gordon::raboud::ca at: 21-Nov-2002 9:50
This looks very exciting, but there are always - gotchas.
First, nothing is free. What is the cost going to be - really. Sure the
program may be free to downloand, but someone at sometime, will have to pay
something to somebody. My guess is that the WorldMaster will be paying
SafeWorld Inc. something once this is out of beta. So what is it?
I don't want to be starting up World's and then have to cancel them later
once I find out that the cost is $xx/month per world or something like
that. I'm already paying $xx/month for webhosting accounts and would
prefer to not have to pay any more monthly fees.
There are a bunch of other questions I have but I suspect that they will
be answered if I just use the program. I'll be downloading once I'm off
the Amiga OS and back on Windoze OS.
