DVD Shrink is no more?

Hi guys,

Just found out through a friend of mine that the DVD Shrink website is no more.

http://www.dvdshrink.org/

Does this mean that DVD shrink has gone the way of DVD Decrypter?

What are your views guys?

@Sirber

That is a good backup plan.

At least there are still places people can get this tool if needed.

I wonder why the site has closed, maybe because development ceased? Or maybe something more sinister. Who knows.

oh the rumors. I was informed of that 2 days ago but there's really no reason for speculation.
The "official" DVD Shrink site was basically a volunteer site that the author endorsed. The author never had anything to do with this site, and it going down has nothing to do with the author or software itself. dvd shrink has no longer been developed for a while now because of personal reasons (Recode and Shrink look very much alike, that's all I can say), and it's not like this site going down has any bearing on the future that dvd shrink may or may not have.

Naturally, DVD Shrink has always been available from my software archive and will remain available right there. There never was much of a need for that official homepage.. the software and guides that were updated with the release of each new version.. my site has offered all that for a long time.
