Apparently not - if your middle name is "Greed" or "Plagiarism" ;)

Yep his own website states:

The old weather site that has been provided for many years by Hastings Yacht Club at the address http://hastingsweather.com.au has now been replaced with a brand new site designed and implemented by WeatherSoft. The new site went live at 2pm on Monday 10 July 2017.

Im going to just reiterate what I said earlier and thats the last of the say I have on the matter. what is done is done and its time to move on .

I would like to say thanks for all the emails this afternoon I acknowledge your kind words ,disappointments and requests but Im not making any exceptions , if I do it for one I would have to do it for all.

I will reiterate ..

first and foremost lets not beat around the bush you want to make money ? from something that is offered for free

no i cant revoke as it clearly states but Im not going to sit here for months developing something that someones going to use for profit or personal financial end of story !! do I look stupid ?

a copy of my response via email

the damage is done you are free to do whatever you wish I have no control over that , i have no inclination to pursue or continue , i feel cheated , it took 2 years to put this altogether and I don't recall any communication with you to use this in a commercial or personal profit environment .

do as you wish and whatever amendments you make should be because its honest not because someone is forcing you with the issue..

I am truly finished as I said you wont be last and I don't want to deal with it, it was a hobby carried on using techniques learnt from working as a designer for many years..

today it does not feel like an hobby ..

end of subject..yours brian ..

I think we should leave Brian with the last word on this.

Just to add my thanks and admiration for what you've done, your template is truly beautiful as well as functional, you have such a talent for what you do.

Disappointing news but I understand. Thanks for all your work. Also, I love seeing the notebook picture on your website of the origins of the project from two years ago.

Thank you for installing your template. However, I advise you to continue developing it and putting it free for everyone. Only then can you defeat the god money.

Brian, I just started a WX website last week (my first) and yours was the first template I installed. Thank you for all you did though I wish I got involved earlier. I'm working on meteotemplate right now.

There's no disputing, it hurts so much more when something like that happens, especially when you're real intent is to just offer (GIVE) your personal work to help others.

You will be missed. The only option is to protect yourself, how ever you chose. I'd like to see you return but I can't argue when a hobby is no longer fun it's no longer a hobby. It's a job you're not getting paid for!

I wanted to thank you before this thread was locked Brian. As well as Jachym, whom I've just met a few days ago via email. You are both superbly talented individuals and a true asset to this hobby!

THANK YOU BRIAN, best wishes.
John

I understand why you're giving it up, Brian, nevertheless I'm very sorry to see you go.

Your design is at once functional, elegant and fast and that is what makes it so great.
I intend to keep running it as long as I can and continuing to give credit where it is due.

Thanks for all your past work. I'll continue to watch your personal page to see what you do with it in the future.

Thanks again for all,

I am a late installer of Brians template and wish I had found it earlier than I did. The guy is an absolute legend for his contribution of countless hours and money. This is a massive loss for the WX community and is certainly disappointing to see some people behave in this way.

All the best for the future Brian and thanks for your amazing / quick responses to requests for support.

Is there by chance a mirror for the last version? I had not updated for several weeks and see some layout changes that I do not have.
