Smashr, maybe you'd like it if people stopped paying you for any work you do.
Lorty has a right to charge for his software and definately deserves the $10 or so that he charges. I would use it, except that I want to do a lot of customized things that his doesn't support (and are too custom for him to have a reason to implement).
Sure, it is lorty's perogative to charge whatever the hell he wants for his software. It is his afterall. I am simply urging people not to pay him. It just doesnt make sense.... As far as LCD plugins a such, here is what I use:
I use a little program called lcdprint to write "Computer is booting" and such things...
The way you said it, it sounded like you wanted people to use Lorty's plugin without paying him. I have no problem with you using a different plugin. Try suggesting an alternative instead of just saying not to use his.
