Hello PhiMatrix customers,
I’d like to thank you for your support of PhiMatrix. It’s one expression of a broader passion I have to help others to see and create beauty in the world around them.
In the many years I’ve been selling PhiMatrix since 2004, I’m finding that a one-time purchase fee for customers with support costs that go on for years and years for me just isn’t economically viable. Sometimes it’s just looking up licenses for users who purchased over ten years ago. Recently it meant investing heavily in time and funds to rewrite/update ten different platforms to create a 64-bit version for Mac Catalina.
I’m not charging anything for this update, and to make it easy for users I”ve made it work with their existing license codes. I would like to ask though that you help me to offset the costs by subscribing to a new PhiMatrix Gold Support program. At only $7 per year, this includes software updates, email support for technical or application questions, assistance with lost licenses and occasional new updates. You can unsubscribe at any time.
Some of you may prefer to help with one time voluntary support. While some of you use PhiMatrix infrequently, others benefit from it every day in your professions. Whatever you contribute is up to you, and is sincerely appreciated.
This began in the late 1990s when I wrote the first articles for GoldenNumber.net, which went on to often have over one million visitors per year. In 2004 I had a developer create an early version of PhiMatrix. In 2009, I learned object-oriented program for the express purpose of being able to create the software that you’re using today. In 2018 I was approached by a publisher and wrote my first book, “The Golden Ratio – The Divine Beauty of Mathematics.” This has all been very rewarding and educational, and has allowed me to meet and help many very fascinating people.
I provide much of my work for free, and have tried to keep prices low for the software. It actually takes about ten different platforms to create and maintain it, and sometimes have to pay outside consultants to overcome the technical challenges. The last upgrade to 64 bit software for Mac Catalina was particularly expensive.
