You know, I am starting to realize quite a few things about this magic community.
1) It's almost not worth releasing anything, because of the hassle you get from the self-righteous do gooders who believe that they are more "right" than you are.
2) Crediting is a nightmare these days.
3) No matter what you try to do to appease people, and do the right thing, you will never appease them, and never do the right thing.
I don't think I am becoming jaded yet, but when I (or even a new magician) see a bunch of stuff like this, it makes me wonder what I am doing it for. I thought magic was about the "magic" and not about, well... anything else. Don't get me wrong, I understand the need to credit, research and do your homework, but what about the less scrupulous people who don't, and steal your work. Makes you want to shrug your shoulders and say why bother.
I love magic, and I deeply respect a lot of people in this field, (suck up mode on), especially people like Richard.. (suck up mode off) *wink*. There are people who give selflessly to this art, and do you know what. Regardless of what others do, it's these selfless people, who work their asses off for people like you and me, that keep me doing what I do. The very idea of "being like...." the people I look up to, makes me want to be better.
Anyways... My two cents.
Andy: I've read a lot of stuff about your effect, maybe next time I am in the shop, I will check it out. Regardless, it nice to see that character is important to you.
