Yep! You sure did and I can almost be positive that most of it is
copyrighted material stolen from the rightful owners. So,very good idiot
brain you are helping support a thief. Am I slamming you? Yes I am as some
of my copyrighted designs could possibly be on your disk with out my
permission along with several hundred others that now won't release there
designs to the net for fear of having there hard work stolen.
Bad, bad move.
If you're self-promoting your stuff, make the noun a past-temse verb
and "get...., you troll!"
I've seen DirtRiderDude's CD, and yours is probably the same -- scan
of plans from magazines (small original image, plus errors from
scanner positioning and resolution, small image size) that are totally
useless being enlarged to anything near their original size.
A decent scanned plan set as a B&W GIF file (tightest compression)
takes about 1 Megabyte. I've seen PDF files for plansets that are
mostly blank paper down to about 50KBytes, but getting them printed
out is just as much of a pain -- duplicating shops with wide plotters
are rare and they charge $$$ for opening non-image files such as PDF
These collection/compilation sets are jsut highway robbery, and not
worth the effort.
I also doubt that there are actually 3000 freeware plans available!
Probably have a couple of my designs that used to be on StarCAD as free use
from there. I know that his site was ripped off for plans.
I wouldn't have minded so much Paul if they would have just left in the
title blocks. But to cover there tracks that was removed. ANYONE BUYING
THESE DISKS is being ripped off as the quality of the plans sucks big time
and almost all of what you get is a scan of a magazine page. Not worth the
shipping or the disc there on.
