Cool Possible to remove Jim's name from bottom?

I would like to know if it is possible to remove Jim's signature from the bottom left of the screen saver. I really don't want to see his name, not knocking him in any respect.

Hi, and welcome to the forum. As for your question the answer is No. He is the artist and the artist always signs his/her work. Sorry.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Unhappy Why did I know I would get such a response?

A simple no would have sufficed. I paid the artist through Sam's Club by purchasing his product for under $15.

He could be like the artists Disney has used where they have placed something in the artwork other than their signatures.

I bought the product to look nice. I think the signature stands out way too much and looks poor. Mr. Sachs could have his signature there by default and give the masses like me the option to take or turn it off. Just my two cents, you know, a consumer of software.

You are of course entitled to your opinion. I am sorry that you feel this way. Jim has put years of his life into this product, and even now I haven't seen another screen saver that rivals his work, especially not one that was created by one man alone. Jim has always stated that he considers himself to be more artist than programmer, he just uses computers instead of canvas. I have yet to see any painting created by any artist worth his salt that wasn't signed with his name. In this case that is the way Jim intends it and the way we all take it. I hope you enjoy your purchase regardless, and if you have any other questions feel free to ask them.

Wink Time to return it to Sam's

Well, time to return this software to Sam's Club. If I wanted to see a poor font, I would boot the ol' Amiga with Workbench 1.3. I am curious what Jim's take on this is, beyond what the admins have posted. This will be my last post on the matter.

Oh, did the M$ XP Plus version also have the signature too? I believe it does.

Damn, I guess you can't please everyone. Kids. As for returning software, Good luck. I don't know of any place that will take an open program. Sorry you didn't like it.

Well to me that just seems slightly off. I can't see anyone getting that ticked over Jim's name in the bottom corner. Unless I wanted to turn it in to the teacher and tell them I did it, lol.

Although I don't particularily agree with the "being an artist entitles you to anything" viewpoint, the fact is that the cost for the screensaver with signature is less than 15 bucks. Fine. The price for one without it is something else. Returning a program working as promised just because you don't like it sounds difficult (I'm assuming it's the same over on your side of the pond).

Purchasing the "product" (for less than $15 or any other price) automatically doesn't transfer the full rights to do anything and everything with the product to the purchaser.

Yep TT its the same over here, unless he just deliberately scratches it and takes it back they will tell him no. Even then about all they will usually do is exchange it for another copy, not refund your money.

I'll be glad to make him a special copy with no signature for $10,000. As far the "font" being poor, there really is no font. It's just letters made out of gravel. Regarding Sam's Club - I get virtually nothing from them. They are discontinuing it, by the way. Replacing it with Aquatica.

I think this 'gentleman' has made a few enemies here, or at the very least worn out his ‘welcome.’

I think he’ll not ‘Be Back’

I want to know what all the fuss is about. I mean, it's not exactly intrusive is it!? iMark just demonstrated that very neatly. So what's the problem, unless it's for (peal of thunder, flash of lightning) nefarious purposes (/peal).

Nah, one could grow tired of it. $10k is a bit too much, but I could see how someone would like it better without.

I was just kidding about the $10,000. I would not do it for any price.

This is probably one of my old buddies from the Amiga days just razzing me.
