I remember that he used to post here fairly regularly too.
Can't say for sure, but I suspect that he got tired of getting pounded by a poster who was irate that Marvin didn't handle some obscure situation exactly how he thought it should be handled, and then started going on long rants about how bad Marvin was.

As I keep saying, ebook programs are very much a niche market and most developers don't make much money. Most people use the ebook program associated with their ebook store - Books, Kindle or Kobo for example.

That's rather unfortunate. Sucks to kill the joy for somebody like that. I re-installed it yesterday, and was still very impressed by how sleek it is. The speed-reading mode is interesting.
