When I grabbed them a month ago they seemed to work fine. I cannot understand how a link to dropbox could loop back to the op, but after 20 years in IT it would not be the strangest unenplained thing I have ever seen a computer do.

Try this. I copied them from his profile, tested them and they worked. Maybe it will work better via a forum post instead of copied off of his profile page.

They worked for me, but since I haven't gotten any negative feedback... I guess they are all right to post on this page now.

Thanks, I have no explanation as to why it's doing that. I figured I was smart enough to click the "click here" button, perhaps not.

The "click here" button on my signature is to the thread. You have to go to my profile page and cut and paste the link you want to the address bar on your browser. It says so in the first post on the BCS thread. The signature is so I can get the word out there while posting in other threads. Sorry if it was a bit confusing, but I wanted to keep this thread link free until the recipes were 100% with everyone. KurtB posted the direct links, and they should work. I am going to post them in the first post like I said i would when the time came.

Ok guys, just received this yesterday.

As far as the BCS recipes collection, these are being used without permission and as a collection they are a violation of the copyright. I wish there was a nicer way to put that but it is what it is. I do, however, understand why it was done and think it can be a valuable resource. What I'd like to do is work towards a solution that would honor the work that you have done but that would also include proper attribution and compensation for my author. I think we could work something out that would turn out mutually beneficial for both parties. What say you?

If you want to discuss over a beer, I can arrange to come to Houston one weekend soon and we could meet to discuss possibilities of how we could best move forward together. In the meantime, I'd appreciate it if you could remove the collection from the site until we get this resolved. Please send me a link when you are done - my work email is [email protected] and my direct home office line is xxx-xxx-xxxx. Call anytime, I'm sometimes in and out as I'm working on a new manuscript about IPA's (thirsty work!) but I will get back to you if I miss your call.

Cheers~

What do you guys think I should do? This isn't even from a lawyer. Time to chime in and lets hear your opinions.

Dude, remove the download. They did the right thing and contacted you in a very nice way. They could have just had a lawyer contact you instead.

Yep. I agree. I'd remove them, then meet with her and find out what she has in mind.

I love the downloads, but also own the book.

Yep, I agree too. Remove the downloads (thanks, I got them and I do have the book), and contact her to figure out a way to be "mutually beneficial".

What you don't want is to be contacted by a lawyer. Once a lawyer starts, everyone is screwed.
