    Question what happened to......SAUSAGE?

    remember hot dog and sausage.com. well the site is still up but the sizzler newsletter hasn't been updated since 2004 and the forums don't work. Hot Dog was teh editor I started out with. would be a shame to see it go.

    It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.

    Most of the staff had ties with Sausage it seems.

    Ok but are they still updating the software? It'd be weird to have the software current but not the site or forums

    HotDog was sold to some X-employees of Sausage and I believe the company has since gone belly up. Don't quote me on that, but that's the word on the street. I dare say anyone who was using HotDog would have since moved on to some other software by now as it hasn't changed much in the last 4 years.

    Mark, Julian and I worked for Sausage once, but we had all moved on to SitePoint by late 2000. Kevin also used to write content for the Sizzler.

    It was a great little product back in the day, but almost none of the original Hotdog team have anything to do with the editor now. My understanding is that 'Sausage Software' is now one or two people, and there is some pretty bad blood from ex-team members.
