If this is your first time to use HawgView: Good luck and enjoy...welcome to HawgView!
For most of you, this is probably a new location on the World Wide Web
for the same tools that you have been using over the past several years. There
is a reason for this new location, mainly because the original code on Google
(hawgview.googlecode.com) was recently deactivated by Google. However, you may be
accustomed to going to hawgview.com, but have recently been told that it is a fraud! Let me explain...
A while back (maybe a year or more) someone took my code from the Google location, registered the
domain hawgview.com and claimed to be me, Neo. That was not me. It was someone who, at the time, was a JTAC.
Once I learned of this, I contacted this person, and he assured me that he was only doing it for the good
of the community to make it easier for everyone to access. Thus, I didn't mind... he was one of us after all.
A few days ago (mid-Feb 2013), you may have received an email from someone claiming to be Neo at hawgview.com.
I would like to set the record straight about this person and that site.
First, he is not affiliated with me (Neo) in any way and has nothing to do with the creation,
development, or concept of HawgView at all, whatsoever, PERIOD! I am the sole developer and creator of
this website... which I did purely as a tool to help the CAS community--You!
Second, after his email was sent (asking for money) I contacted him and told him that I didn't
want people to pay for HawgView and that I would gladly cover any costs associated with the DNS fees
he mentioned in the email. He denied me this, essentially saying he wasn't comfortable with relinquishing
control over that site.
UPDATE: Third, as of today (Feb 22nd) I have spoken with email@example.com. He has agreed to issue a refund in full to anyone that has donated to the other site. Please email him if you'd like a refund.
Ultimately, it appears as though my benefit of the doubt to someone from our community has proven to
be an unfortunate situation. For that, I am sorry.
Who am I? I am an A-10 driver first and only a software developer by hobby. Over the past decade, I've
been flying CAS missions, trying to provide the best support possible to our heroes on the ground.
I am still flying in the Air National Guard and plan to for as long as possible, but you will have to forgive
me for not giving out my real name. Many of you know me, and I would be glad to talk with any of you over email if you
have any questions. I just want to keep my personally identifiable information safe, for obvious reasons. In other words, I am one of you.
If you would like to contact me, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In
the meantime, spread the word:
Do NOT go to hawgview.com -- It is NOT controlled by me! The only safe site is here : Hawg-View.com
P.S. Thanks for reading this message. As mentioned above, I've added some new capabilities to this site. Mainly, it
should now work in Safari (tested), FireFox (tested), and Chrome (tested). "Touch" events on certain devices may act funny,
but you should still be able to specify coordinates using "Step 1" on the right! Please send more feedback to my email (above)
as I'm currently working on a complete overhaul.
