I have to admit I was surprised to find Kagi still existed when recently buying a GraphicConverter update.

I searched my emails to see when I last bought through Kagi. Turns out it was a Cap'n Magneto license just last month, because I felt I owed the author (see "Secret History of Mac Gaming" thread). I hope he got his money, but I fear the worst.

Before that:
2008: Reckless Drivin' (don't judge me, my son wanted it.)
2003: Enigmo

Plus one or more products prior to 2002 but the emails aren't clear. Possibly one of the Bugdom's.

Isn't Kagi the payment service that Jeff Vogel uses?  I've a butt load of his games, plus GraphicConverter and Interarchy (which I don't use much anymore).  I'm actually feeling nostalgic remorse for the loss of Kagi.  It's probably just old man syndrome, but I feel it just the same.

He has been using Humble's API for a while now. Before that I recall it being something written himself not Kagi.

He always did the legwork himself IIRC.

I'm sure I still have the old registration letters and booklets he used to send out around here somewhere.

I thought Kagi was a person I could not remember. It's not easy getting older. It's hard thinking about stuff, trying to remember stuff.

I used to get Kagi and Kali mixed up. Before I forgot about both of them, that is.

Now I'm trying to remember if I licensed my copy of Kali using Kagi. But surely I would have remembered if I had.

I finally found a file I'd requested from Kagi with a rundown of all Kagi purchases. I hadn't used it in 13 years.

EDIT: THEN I find the file of a saved email from Kagi for a license for Pacifist from only 4 years ago... the previous email was from 2004. :cool:

Wow - it appears that they had to shutdown because of some fraudulent activity:

Quote

For the past ten years Kagi has been struggling to recover from financial losses due to a supplier fraud situation. We have reduced the debt but the recovery has failed and forced us to close.

We are sorry we failed you.
