Your email address doesn't matter, it's the PayPal transaction ID's you'll need later. If you didn't keep them you can go back into your PayPal History/Find a transaction. You'll get an automated email, then a reply from 2socks when he gets around to it telling you that you can log in, then go to Announcements to see how to get it.
He's the only one doing the Activation emails so it may take a short while. He mentioned that they kind of didn't plan that right. He has to sleep, and has a day job so it may take a few hours to get the official okie-dokie. Also remember GB is about six hours ahead of us, nine hours for you.
It's not they, it's a he, one person does it all, and he has a day job too.
The activation scheme is due to pirates. GB mentioned one time that he had been gone a few days, had 1300 license request in his email, only 2 were valid. He also gave some other astronomical figures. When the way to get 3.0 originally was through a download link that made it to torrent sites, and not with the current licensing scheme where he emails the app, he had something like 50,000 downloads in a period, with less than 100 donations.
The new version will do automatic updates, but you initially have to send proof of donation via your PayPal transaction ID to get the app.
MTR does much more than Ripit, separate title extraction for example. Removing most region restrictions. Removing languages, subtitles, and unneeded audio so compression is less. Movie only so you don't have to compress the movie to fit a standard 4.7G DVD. Now it does full disc but will eliminate the extras so you don't ned to compress so much and lose quality, but keeps the menus. Yes, I know it can be burned to dual layer too to eliminate all compression, but DL discs have just begun to come in to the reasonable priced range. Some features that were in 3.0 are not in 4.0 yet but will be soon.
Edit - I just checked and RipIt's help forums and feedback are DOA for some reason.
I'll need his info too... I donated in 2006 and have lost my license.
Don't know, I'll find out. I mentioned to 2socks he might want to amend the instructions for that scenario. Currently you need to email the license, if you don't have it you'll have to get one, that's what I asked him about since the scheme for getting 4 requires a license.
