    Hey just wondering if anyone's in the same situation as I am.

    Last year I bought a script that's Zend-encoded and works on php5.2. I was taking my sweet time working on it here and there but now I found out the script provider isn't going to upgrade their Zend license to work with php5.3.

    In other words, when my host migrates to php5.3 my site will stop working.

    However in the meantime my host says they have no exact time frame for when they migrate to 5.3 fully (btw they currently support both php 5.2 and 5.3). I don't have anything to worry about YET, but I don't know if I should waste my time developing and promoting it when it's gonna stop working down the line.

    Of course the other way to look at it is... I already paid for it, I should at least recuperate the cost. But when the script stops working all my effort building it up will go to waste.

    Your thoughts???

    Just pay a few bucks and get it decoded. No big deal.
