What happened to Morguesoft !?

Friends!

Today my eyes opened on the glory of the elaborate fresco that looks over my sleep, the towering Carrara marble columns that flank my monumental bed, carved from a single majestic millenary oak - and I reached for my laptop.

As I browsed my startup-set of tabs, which prominently features Amigaworld.net AND Morguesoft.eu, I was aghast, AGHAST my dearest friends, at the disappearance of this majorly loved Amiga software publisher. Another blow dealt to the dwindling ranks of our Amiga developers.





Lo and behold, comrades.

Curiously, http and https seem to lead to distinct embodiments of this tragic fate, HOWEVER this doesn't change the fact that Morguesoft is no more. If anything, it doubles the sorrow. The bitter taste we're all left with.

And certainly, it doesn't lift for a mere second the dark veil on what abruptly sealed the destiny of this once luxuriant corporation. Only T*******o could shed some of that light we'll now all be thirsty for.

As well as our thirst will grow more and more for a sequel to...



...a thirst that is destined to never be quenched.

In loving memory of Morguesoft,
1995 - 2021

MRJM

@MEGA_RJ_MICAL

Maybe he’ll return as PhoenixSoft and use his talents for good and imaginative products rather than just smut?

I can’t say I’m thirsty for whatever tickle stick sex slave rubbish he had planned with the next version of Sabrina the Sex Slave!

Hence, we had time to prepare for this moment. Next time better don't forget to attach a few post its on the marble columns of your bed (left *and* right to be safe) that remind you on the essential things going on.

From the vertiginous depths of my heart,
thanks for the link.

Alas! Mega does not practice waddling across other fora.
This place, originally founded for us all by David Doyle, is my only home.

Posts will be attached,
further eulogies will be whispered in the night.

Let us all wish Juan Carlos 'Templario' Herran Martin de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María Gran Cruz del grado de Collar de la Orden de los Caballeros De Palencia a peaceful wallk into the sunset of Amiga development.

Best,
MEGA!

BUT WAIT!

This still doesn't explain why would he take down his existing rich library of applications, the fruit of twenty long years of putting his gifts to work!

THE PLOT THICKENS my friends,
the plot certainly thickens.

Templario had a strange way to argue sometimes but at least he did something productive (for free by the way). And no-one was forced to use his software.

This is much more than just making bad jokes and trolling around permanently like a specific dude here.

@AP Yeah, indeed. What has Mr Mega done for the community besides playing the evil clown? And its part of the reason why i.e. a new Timberwolf or a Libre Office havent seen the light of the day. "Good" job.

Whoa there, friend LarsB!
What's that?

What does poor old MEGA have to do with Timberwolf and Libre Office now !?
Don't let the plot thicken too much, my friend.

Yes, I heard a rumor that MEGA held down the hands of the programmers preventing them from updating the code in Timberwolf and Libre Office. Indeed it sounds like he stopped these innovative developments first hand!

Just for the record, a new beta of Libre Office for OS4 was released to the betatesters three days ago. So despite all the delays, the development continues and the port is shaping up quite nicely.

@MEGA_RJ_MICAL It was not your "achievement". But the general way people are treated in the community. Trolling. What ever you do, you cant make it right. So the projects went from the original authors to other people. Its good that they are still working on it. But some good coders have dropped their meanwhile unloved hobby because of this.

@LarsB

Friend LarsB,
things could be made very right. Oh so very right.

What you call "trolling" I call, we call, "laughing not to cry".

When someone takes themselves way too seriously, when someone announces some obviously out-of-reach goal, when someone acts oh so pompously, when someone guarantees somehing within a certain timeframe and rattles a tin cup to collect community money amd THEN comes back with a bunch of tear-jerking excuses - THEN, my dearest friend, "trolling" happens.

Because an alternative would be to play along, hence enabling more of the same. Because another alternative would be to act all oh so enraged and disappointed.

But no, we, the MEGA RJs of this world, choose to go neithet way. We choose to walk the path of fun. Of sarcasm. Of taking nothing as serious, granted, sacred.

Do you, friend LarsB, friend whose avatar at the time of this writing literally EMBODIES what I just described, understand?

MEGA

You must be kidding. In all fairness, this T*******o guy is just a toxic, disgusting, racist, lying, ignorant member of mankind. You only need to take a look at this thread here to come to this and only this objective conclusion, if you don't then you didn't read it.
The (Amiga)world is certainly a better place without him. Unfortunately it's almost for sure that he's already planning his "comeback".

And this M******J guy is not toxic? His "contribution" to the Amiga community are silly jokes and bullying other people (see AmiDark).

@AP

Friend AP,

let's be fair now! Who has glaring-red abuse reports on their profile? You do!
Who has none? MEGA_RJ_MICAL, yours truly!

Be nice now.

My batteries are running low, and I am done bullying for a long while.
You certainly don't want to divert my attention to the many shades of gray of the derelict world of aspiring filmmakers!

Every sincerely yours,
MEGA!

@MEGA_RJ_MICAL:

Yes, I am the toxic one.
That must be the reason why AmiDark and others left this site.

To be clear: I got one abuse report in 18 years and was not a single day banned from this site.

The reason you got no abuse report is simple because there is no real moderation here since years. But as I remember one of your accounts was deleted although, which never happened to me.

But anyway: No need to discuss this further, I will go to ignore-mode like before.
