I've been contemplating for some time giving up my position as front for the Messiah2 Team.
Frankly I don't need the personal attacks that come from certain quarters centred on history of which I had no part. It's very unpleasant.
I have also been uncomfortable for some time with potential implications of the UK Copyright Act. Whilst all my literature has always stated that the Messiah2 is not intended for use with pirated copies of games, I cannot be sure that users of the chip will abide by that condition of supply. The UK law is clear - if it can be shown that I have reason to suspect that the chip would be used for purposes that infringe the Copyright Act, then I can be pursued.
So for those two reasons, I'll disengage from Messiah and return to being plain old independent Charlie - still helping others as I've always done.
Also, that won't stop me from trying to find out what's happening to the v9s and staying active in that regard.
It probably won't stop the nasties around the forum from remaining nasty - they'll gloat for a start.
But that's it. I've decided.
