I can finally unveil a deal that was in negotiation the last few months.
Due to the tough economic situation, I had to sell next-episode.net to BenTheMan. (the amount will remain undisclosed). He'll be the sole owner and administrator from now on, and some things will unfortunately .. change. Here's the official statement from our new owner:
"I'm very happy we were finally able to close this deal and I want to personally thank santah for his commitment so far and wish him all the best for his future. N-E.net is a great site with, in my view, endless potential. Santah did a great job so far, he built smth. BUT being non-profit, N-E had reached a point where it was goin nowhere. ... So that's what I am going to change. There will be some changes regarding the use and availability of all the services and infos on the site... We will (probably in June) launch N-E 2.0 with premium membership services for a very appropriate per user charge. I'm very excited and convinced all N-E users will understand that in today's world it is basically impossible to give away information for free."
