well he knows what is best for him, but with TB and Cobra *you need to pay to play what should be free anyway* i would not be suprised with his decision.

Some people on IRC are speculating that he won't keep updating the free (no dongle) multiMAN, but others say he will and it may just be a Cobra fork in the multiMAN source code: [Register or Login to view links]

I guess time will tell for sure... here is to hoping he continues to keep the PS3 homebrew scene free and open-source though.

Let's just hope with the Cobra financial assets don't come their liabilities for deank... Max Louarn of Cobra, aka MAXiMiLiEN of Paradox and owner of Divineo, Supreme Factory and Max Console that scammer (reocities.com/hollywood/heights/8442/) Gary Wayne Bowser aka GaryOPA currently runs was involved in some nasty schemes before, for example:

In what is the biggest single case of telephone calling-card theft, an employee of MCI Communications was charged last week with stealing some 60,000 card numbers from MCI and other long-distance companies that were subsequently used to make at least $50 million worth of long-distance calls, according to the Secret Service, the Federal agency that investigates interstate telephone fraud.

Supreme Factory / Divineo was also raided not long ago with Max Louarn named in the legal action initiated by Nintendo, and before that he was busted after a federal court judge found that they had violated the DMCA by selling mod-chips for consoles.
