Lol! Of all the reasons they could have used to explain the delayed updates… they “got drunk”. I would have mentioned something about “technical difficulties” or something.
Honestly, I don’t expect them to last. You don’t tell people who are expecting updates that those updates aren’t coming because you’ve had too much alcohol. And more importantly, you don’t get drunk just before updates are expected. The fact that Arusoft didn’t know any better shows they have a lot to learn. And their inability to recognize that has probably damaged their reputation already.
However, I do hope they manage to prove me wrong. The more decryption options there are, the better. Also, I’m not really mad about them failing to release an update on time. It happens. (If I were in charge of making commercial software, I’d probably take the Debian approach to deciding when to release updates: they’ll be ready when they’re ready.) I just think they should have kept their own reputation in mind when they mentioned why they updates were delayed.
On a plus note, there’s something utterly hilarious about how casually they mentioned getting drunk. It’s almost as if someone left their computer unattended long enough for some prankster to leave their website with a little… surprise. I wonder if whoever wrote that message was drunk at the time.
Also, with all the CDFreaks here, I’m surprised someone didn’t make an Alcohol Soft pun. Does anyone remember Alcohol 120%, or it’s freeware equivalent Alcohol 52%? Arusoft got intoxicated on disk burning!
