Welcome to the forum! The site works fine on this end.

http://www.rf-magazine.com/index.html

Or do you mean if the magazine is still active? Cheers!

I think that he's talking about magazine itself.

And I'm curious too, why there cannot be any RF magazine ?

As far as I remember, Thomas had severe problems with piracy and decided to discontinue RF_Magazine. Of course, Thomas would be able to clarify, but that's how I remember it. It's always a shame when the minority spoil it for the majority. He put a lot of work into each of those issues.

I think that best way to fight with piracy got cmiVFX (they put watermark on each video), maybe some kind of watermark on pdf files would help here....

I feel sorry for Thomas. (six to seven months for a single issue is a lot of time)

I don't think that watermark will help in any way. They just appear on the magazine, any one can still read it.

The more you go deep in protection, the more non-user friendliness the application/document will tend to be.

Digital content is really very hard to protect from piracy.

I hope Thomas would move forward as his work will always be appreciated. :)
And I would really be glad if Thomas could start sale of the C4d and the Realwave related issues. If not all, a brief overview will really be good.

... and the final solution is probably online streaming videos with encryption: safe, but not user friendly at all.

I got to say I bought the python issue, and it is still one of my fav tutorals to read. Im hoping for more issues like that one.

Hello,
I see that nevertheless still another very large interest in this web page exists. I was pleased " at that time" also much on the expenditure " Ocean Waves". Unfortunately it was not added. As would be it, if one the contributions (pdf `s, video…) only online one to look at could (with a certain fee and password entrance, so that one can look at it repeatedly)? It it would be harms, if this unique project would die.
So long Marcel
