Great find - grab it while you can

Although I think we have killed their download server - no difficult at 560Mb per download ...

The download limit was reached for me, but if you register, you'll get it eventually.

High demand... What can you say? It's free?

Speaking of free - get some cool free music :)

It actually really good! Kimo rocks!

I managed to start downloading one of the files once today - but the server collapsed after 47Mb of download !!

I have the downloads in the "My Stuff area" so I think I may just give it a week or two before going for the download.

Biggest prob is that they are huge downloads and their server does not support resuming !!

By the way if you are tempted by the upgrade to version 6 check out the Poser developer website http://www.e-frontier.com/ because their upgrade price is lower (even with the 10% discount Content Paradise are offering) plus they will ship you a set of CDs.

It's a wicked piece of software, for free, so I'm not going to complain. I'm just thankful. I can wait for now.

Wow, thanks for this heads-up.  Like most, I have it in my My Stuff and will get it... later. :)

An interesting note about Poser is that it's the tool to use for making Second Life animations.  So it's nice to be able to do this.  Thanks again for the tip.

For those of you wondering ....
Register for the serial number if you're even vaguely interested.

The download (650mb) can, according to ContentParadise, be made later at any time.

Regards...

The offer has been extended to the 8th (if you missed it) though the download page is still struggling. Seems daft to me to extend an offer they can't currently fulfill - surely a firther 4 day offer would have been better !
