Re: kidcad.info Domain


Hash: SHA1

I'm very surprised to hear this, and a tid bit outraged, considering the
unlikelihood that this is a coincidence.

I don't see why someone would illegally monitor the email of kicad
developers, and then try to profit from this, but being Transylvanian, i
would impale that person on the spot.

I can't contribute financially at the moment, and even if I could, the
sum would be minute. I suggest setting up a PayPal account to receive
donations for this cause. Several smaller donations could add up to the
needed sum.
