Maybe initially JTS I think did use online activation. And at the time their website FAQ referred to it.
But having bought several things from JTS in the past year, and testing the "activation" with my network card disabled, I can say they're no longer using online DRM. Now its just like Matrixgames, which is super!

Okay, so you don't know. But that begs the question... why did you make the "low-hassle" claim?

I made the claim because--wait for it--for me requiring internet access to install a game qualifies as low hassle, as long as I don't need internet access to play it, and I can install it as many times as I want.

But that begs the question--why would I bother to answer any of your questions or assist you in any way in future? I can't really think of an answer for that one!

Site is still down. This isn't looking good.

There is bigger hassle than no working site/company.

Straight from the horse's mouth (No I don't really know if Scott likes being called that)... the site was almost up a couple weeks ago (following multiple software & hardware failures), but got snagged up in Ddos attacks. The site was not the primary target, but got hit nonetheless. Then there was a suspected malware infection and Scott has formatted everything and has been reinstalling everything (turned out there was no malware, but the formatting and reinstallation continued).

Essentially, the site is good to go, but will not go live until all security concerns are addressed and remedied.

To sum up....
as of 9 March 2018
HPS is NOT dead!

I think I remember HPS using nginx. Yes they could have it installed on a windows server, but I hope theyre using linux. That would make them more secure.
And I hope they have a good backup.

The site has been working fine here for days... but only now, do I note that I go in the back door. I've been going directly to the patches and branch off from there. I didn't notice the main page was still down, while the rest of the site seems to work fine.

Exactly! ...By not going to the main page, I've been using the site for days.
Hmmm, do a lot of you go to Matrix main page to get here?

I do if I am looking for game information. I bookmark the forums for Matrix though.

I do the same thing for HPS...oh wait, they don't have forums.

There were multiple sequential problems (see above).
