This is indeed a bit of a shock! I can’t say that I was one of those who seen this coming. I actually felt that the whole freeway project was beginning to embrace a next stage of significant development and I was investing more time on it as a tool with even greater potential for all my web design needs.
Its a particularly unwanted addition to the current sense of chaos and confusion which is afflicting the world.
This must be so very tough for those employed at Softpress. I hope that they have other opportunities come their way.
Like many others, Freeway gave me a way in to web design, with all the associated possibilities that emerged for work etc.
I am so very grateful to all who offered support and advice. Delta Dave, Walter and Big Ern in particular.
Like everyone else I shall have to take stock of where this leaves me in terms of the future. Thomas mentioned maybe another couple of years before there would be a need to leave Freeway behind. Who knows?
Will this forum become the saloon in the middle of a desolation after the gold rush? What is there at the end of a freeway?
Whilst the ramifications of the closure of Softpress will unfold I guess the concern is for support now for those in the middle of developing projects. It does leave many hanging at various stages of progress. Those transitioning form various versions of Freeway, those transitioning sites to responsive design and those trying to resolve niggles with existing work. I guess the fear for many may be that they may have nowhere to turn for support should this forum lose its focus.
There is a lot to take on board as a consequence of this end. Much of what has been said here on this forum has been enlightening.
I hope that this community can still continue to function and find a resolve, a new centre to build around.
All the very best to all at Softpress.
