And to think the recession was over. drcauto of Australia shuts down 31 December. BunkSpeed has to stop selling HyperShot over a lack of royalty payments. Manufacturing Business Technology magazine closes January 7. And now we learn that Cadopolis.com will close February 5.
Cadopolis.com was a Canadian Web site that sold AutoCAD products and add-ons, including my entire line of ebooks. I enjoyed the monthly cheques I received from them. But now the site will be closing as of 5 February, because of slowing business.
One of the guys behind Cadopolis has relaunched his own site at SimpleCAD. Erik Zetterberg is kind enough to carry a number of my ebooks, as well as AutoCAD hatch patterns, CAD blocks, CAD programs, and utilities.
He's written a brief history of Cadopolis and SimpleCAD at What Happened to the Largest CAD Store on the Web.
