    I to think that if they should open source it, I wanted to put it into Karoshi but couldnt for a few reasons.

    Shame about his decision not too.

    Re: The end of Lanview?

    Thanks for everyone's comments.

    I've had several offers for hosting which is very kind, but there are a number of reasons why I cannot take these offers up - which I will not go into. (I will reply to those offers in the fullness of time, but havn't had a chance yet.)

    In terms of charging for the software, this was always a non-starter. If I charge, I'll have to support the product. I simply don't have the time as I work full-time.

    I'm quite open to admit, I'm disapointed with the lack of support from the users of LanView. I personally would be happy to donate £5 or £10 to a project if it was a product I use all the time - and I don't think this is too much to ask. However, since my other business paid for it, i've not really pushed for donations. Now my business is finishing, lack of funds will definately mean I can't afford to pay for the website.

    If the community donates enough to continue the website, then I will continue to develop the software. I can't be fairer than that.

    Again, thanks for all your kind words. It's much appreciated.

    Not a lot. £112 per year.

    Just in case there are those who doubt this, here's the link to my host's pricing plan.

    http://www.plugsocket.com/web-hosting/

    I'm on the Premier Plan (for bandwidth) and it's £95 p/y +vat

    Then there's the domain name ect but thats negligable.

    I’ve only discovered Lanview recently, I don’t mind one bit making a donation, only have it one test lab but so far have been impressed with it, much better than other "free" progs out there..

    Re: The end of Lanview?

    I've only just started to use the software, but so far I find it fantastic. I've only got it installed in a couple of suites here so far as a little test bed, but I am only waiting on the go ahead to roll it out network wide. If that's the case I will certainly attempt to get a little money from my boss to help towards Kev's costs.

    Would be a terrible shame to see it disappear.

    I tend to have problems upgrading to new versions. But what I have works very well I dont bother upgrading anymore. Well worth the donation money.

    Love the slide show program and I found V3.1.8 the best version. The only feature missing that I would find useful is to lock the keyboard and mouse while I remote control the desktop.
