I think it was a newsletter or blog post right before D7II was released, they had paid to use/change/resell D7 as part of their product. I'm a little impressed by the features they've added, but I haven't see anything that is worth paying a much higher rate to use something built on an older version of D7. And I'm personally quite confident that many of those new features are things we'll see in future development of D7II.
Mostly correct Loopey, and I'm not opposed to mentioning their name. RepairTech purchased rights for d7 v6.7 and skinned it up all pretty like to include with their TechUSB product, then later changed the name to TechWARU, but it's no d7II which was a re-write of the original d7 v10, to solve some fundamental issues preventing us from progressing our tech.
Thanks for seeing that and posting, anything I could comment on in this thread is at the link above.

OK -- I get that not everyone frequents the blog https://www.foolishit.com/blog/
of a product they already bought, to stay current with the product news and events that they may want to know about.
I also get that not everyone wants another email newsletter https://www.foolishit.com/newsletter-signup
I get that not everyone wants to revisit the latest newsletter link https://www.foolishit.com/latest-news
...but I remember back in the late 90's I think, when "push" tech was getting standardized, but has anyone at least ever heard of an RSS feed?! https://www.foolishit.com/blog/feed/
d7II info ONLY with none of the CryptoPrevent stuff or anything else: http://www.foolishit.com/category/d7ii/feed/
(and with the link above you can substitute that category slug for anything other that we have listed in our blog categories, and also use tags as well to customize the feed.) But I guess that RSS is a dying tech ... must've been a sign that Google discontinued Reader instead of making it decent.
... so how about social media? ALL blog posts propagate instantly to
and that Face place http://www.facebook.com/foolishitllc
there's a linked-in too https://www.linkedin.com/company/foolish-it-llc
Several times I've posted pre-release versions of d7II here in these very forums and I watch the download count creep by at next to nothing and it's obvious to me that (mostly minus the same few faces) d7II subscribers frequent these forums far less I suspect than social media or even my website/blog (which considering the format is more appropriate for stuff like that I would imagine.) The sheer volume of email we receive at the official contact address backs this up, those who aren't replying to purchase related emails directly are generally contacting us from the website or replying to a post or newsletter.
For our efforts it's a matter of updating multiple sources with redundant info, and the automation of the blog/rss -> social media is covering where the vast majority of anyone will visit.
Not to mention the dMZ, which contains the new signup form where all members (anyone who as purchased d7II, dSupportSuite, or CryptoPrevent Bulk/Resale Edition) can get access to our Support Portal for new and existing customers only. More will be available about this in a new post right here on these forums
