I received the following email today, did you?
NOTE: This email contains information about your PhotoPoint account:
Account Name: XXXXXXXXXX

This is a one time email, and you will not be put on any mailing lists.
As of December 14th, 2001, Pantellic Software, creators, owners, and operators of PhotoPoint.com were forced to cease operations due to financial reasons. PhotoPoint Corp USA similarly entered Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors in July of 2001.
There are currently no plans to bring PhotoPoint.com back online, although we are always interested in discussions from interested business partners for doing so.
CD Ordering Now Available ------------------------- Due to the demand, as a means for members to get copies of their photos, we have arranged for them to be able to purchase CD's of their PhotoPoint accounts. As Pantellic is insolvent, this is being done by a third party.
This offer a short term offer, and will only be extended until May 31st, 2002. All orders must be placed by this time (and payment received by June 15th at the latest). The cost of a CD is $24.95 USD plus $9.95 USD shipping and handling, and includes all of your photos, captions, and guestbook entries.

We appreciate your patience and understanding, and hope that this option is useful to people who may have neglected to keep their original copies.
Imagine, paying to get my OWN pictures back!!!!
(I burn CDs.) :0)
A BIG NOT is right Howlin !!!!!!
Imagine, paying to have someone use their storage to store your pictures. Un-American.
Is that some sort of hi-tech digital hómage to "Farenheit 451"?
I still have all my photos, I just wanted the captions. I used Photopoint more as an inventory system for ebay. When Photopoint went down, my inventory was gone... Oh well, I know better.
