Going to make this post in several different places, so here goes.
In addition to a massive database update (~200MB of new whitelist/blacklist definitions), I've decided to make TTLivescan+ donationware, which is basically the full version of TT Livescan with a few extras thrown in. There are several reasons for doing this.
First and foremost, in the ~4 years that TTLivescan has been up, there have been no sales, and it's simply not worth the effort to maintain a keypool of nearly 500 million license keys (with a potential keypool of 4 trillion). This doesn't include TTLivescan's predecessor, bringing the total lifespan of this project to just over 12 years.
The past 6 years to maintain server costs have all been paid out of pocket, while typically, I work one full-time job, and at least 2 or more side jobs that averages 60+ hours/week. The only reason I've maintained this project for as long as I have is because of two factors:
1)I could afford to pay for the server costs.
2)I enjoy doing it.
Recently, I sustained a fairly serious injury that now prevents me from being able to work, and thus, I have almost no income at this current point in time. I'm looking at the very strong possibility of needing surgery, along with at least a year or two of physical therapy to fully recover. Simply put, bills do not wait. That's how the world works, unfortunately.
Logically, if I cannot pay my bills, I have to prioritize my life accordingly. Unfortunately, there is the very real possibility that this project will simply cease to exist for an indefinite period of time, unless I can afford to keep it afloat. If you can't make a donation, at least help spread the word about it.
