it's nice to be super again! On another subject, I always thought that CAD should be listed under audio utilities and not Media players as it currently is. O_o

yes, you're right and we (me and mrrste) had quite a discussion about this when he managed to get us an own CAD category here on dA back then. his arguement was -and i have to admit that i definitely see a point there- that a sub-category in media players is a far more prominent location, so that CAD would profit from much more attention, than when placed in audio utilities. by definition CAD of course isn't a media player, but then again can be used in conjunction with quite a lot of them, so that if people search for let's say a winamp or a foobar skin, then there's a good chance that they also might stumble over the CAD sub-cat by coincidence. if we were in auduo utils, then i guess people would have to search for CAD skins much more specificly, you know.

well, what can i say? it isn't the most logic placement, but i sure got used to it and the points made do speak for the current one imo. ;)
and it's not too far off either, don't you think?

Yes, taking into account everything, it sounds right. Meanwhile the group still receives album art submissions :D (Big Grin) . Thanks for clearing that up for me Otis.

Sad to see the CAD homepage gone. Wish the app were still in development. Still glad to have it and still use it daily :D

yeah, i feel the same. for many years cdartdisplay.com has been the place to go to in case an issue with CAD would arise. it was a place where we could get infos and inspiration. well, the cruelty of the internet is that if you're hosting a website, then you're also under constant attack by spammers, hackers and the like. and one of those attacks has rendered our forum rather useless in one incident and the company that provided us with the forum software was unable to reinstate a proper backup. so, basically most of the things we gathered in there over the years was gone. a decision had to be made and so we decided to somewhat start anew by moving to a different forum software provider (link) and let go of the skin gallery.

our new address is now www.cdartdisplay.byethost8.com.

it's not that beautiful and fancy anymore, but i think the most important links (download, skins, forum and contact) are all there. so, we're not gone for good. it's true that the development is down to a minimum and there probably won't be any new features or supported players added to CAD anymore, but i'm almost certain that we can still expect some important bugfixing updates every now and then in case for example a newer iTunes version is once more acting strange in conjunction with CAD.

so, to sum it up: we're still there. not as pretty and powerful as we used to be, but still we offer ways to stay in contact and to get help.

thanks for the sentiment and support, buddy. :hug:

I was wondering what happened. Wouldn't it make more sense to make CAD open source and move to Github or codeplex?

And someone needs to update the links in the description page.
