    Anyone know where a copy of the (now-dead) link’s content can be found? http://www.tgdaily.com/2005/10/22/rtf_eula/ is MIA

    Sorry, I can’t seem to find the full article anywhere else. If you do a Google search for “RTF EULA” you get some other pages like mine that have quotes from various parts of the page. Nowhere the complete thing tho.

    If you do find it I’d appreciate you letting me know so I can update my link. 🙂
