SoftwarePassport / Armadillo EOL'd?

I'm having a few issues with the above product and poking around their site it appears that all the Buy Now links for the product have been removed.  Has the product been EOL'd?  I see that Chad is is still responding to some people on their forums but I wasn't sure if he was still associated with the product since the DR takeover.  Anyone know what is going on?

Another one bit the dust, eh? Maybe I should edit my last blog post and change the discount end-date for refugees to July 2014.

In all seriousness, I don't know. I just spent 5 minutes looking at their page trying to get to a purchase page and failed. Whether it's because their design is garbage or that they're dropping the products, I don't know.

Looks like they may have called it quits.  Response from their support email:

"We're not selling SoftwarePassport at the moment, while we decide its future direction, though we continue to support it. "

Digital River drove another company they acquired into the dust? What a surprise.

Well, their website has a great big yellow box that states:

"Important Notice
Starting on January 1, 2013, Software Passport terminated all sales for the Software Passport product lineup. Beginning on July 1, 2014, we will be removing the Software Passport website. In the near future, Software Passport will not be supported.
Thanks for your support of Software Passport over the years.
The Software Passport Team"

Don't know how you missed it.  ;)
