The limitations are here:

You lose quite a lot of functions after you add more than 50 dvd's e,g, the ability to export XML, view collection by cast and crew etc...

He is still maintaining the infrastructure, however:
•  Renewal registration for his company "Invelos Software, Inc." is due by 31-Jul-2022.
•  Domain name  registration for "invelos.com" is due to expire on 11-May-2022.

The clock is ticking...

Here is some good news, the INVELOS.COM domain name, which was due to expire on 12-May-2022, was renewed in March and now has an expiry date of  11-May-2025.

The only question remaining is, will Ken Cole submit the annual registration report for his corporation, INVELOS SOFTWARE, INC., by the due date of 31-Jul-2022. If he doesn't, he runs the risk the Missouri Secretary of State may dissolve his corporation, which means the corporation can no longer carry on its business other than to wind up, liquidate and pay off the creditors.

More good news, Ken Cole submitted on 26-Jul-2022 a biennial registration (that is, for two years) report for his corporation INVELOS SOFTWARE, INC.

Hopefully he's coming back from the place he's been for another go at it.

At this point, I highly doubt it.  He stopped uploading his physical collection back in 2018 which wasn't too long after 4.0 was released.  I do wonder if his mindset changed and he shifted to streaming which may have had an influence on his continued development of this program.

If so, he could have adapted the software to include streaming services.

True, but if he had any interest in adding that feature to the software it likely would have been done long ago. Streaming services basically catalog your collection for you keeping a list of what you own so maybe he saw no need for it.

You never own it.  All you "own" is the right to access the content during whatever interval the streaming service elects to make it available.

I can understand people who want to subscribe to a streaming service to watch something once or twice, but I don't understand the desire to "purchase" digital content unless it can be downloaded locally and viewed whenever (and on whatever device) one chooses.

I agree.  Although I will say one thing, Red Fox AnyStream.  That certainly makes me feel a lot more comfortable about 'buying' digital content, especially when it's simply not available on physical media or only as a very expensive import.
Do you ever find yourself striving for perfection with an almost worthless attempt at it?  Guttermouth "Lemon Water".  Also, I include in my Profiler database VHS tapes, audio DVDs, audio books (cassettes and CDs) and video games (disk based and digital), as well as films and TV I've bought digitally.  So I'm an anarchist, deal with it.  Just be thankful I don't include most of my records and CDs etc in it too; don't think I haven't been tempted...

Personally, my favorite streaming service, and the only one I watch with any consistency, is Kanopy.  Which is free with my public library card.  So much unique stuff that's just not available otherwise.

You can do both.. buy digital and physical disks.. they both have advantages.. I personally don't mind chucking down $5 for a 4K title that is streamed from Apple at a higher bitrate.. sure by numbers it won't touch disks, but if you double blind test people they generally don't know the difference.  We like to think we can tell, but when you actually check our own confirmation bias is way strong and misleading.

Agreed but that wasn't always the case. It is very hard to beat or equal a 4K UHD disc. In the early days, the emphasis was mostly on the "4K" and even then it was rare to see the movie through without any network glitches. It was back then that most of us formed our biases. I agree that things have vastly improved since then.

Absolutely, it wasn't always the case.  There used to be noticeable jumps.  Going from DVD to Bluray, noticeable difference, Bluray to 4K noticeable difference (generally)... now we are at a peak, the noticeable differences are minor.  Internet speeds are fast and can handle 4K Dolby Vision streaming with ease, companies like Apple are sending things down with higher and higher bitrates (still no 4K disk but questionable difference) ... Today, people think they can hear or see differences in sound, when in reality it is often not the case and their own confirmation biasses coming out - in double blind tests most people cannot see or hear differences they think they can, the exception being pro's in specific fields (audio engineers and so on).  As far as the general public goes they really can't tell the difference... This could also be why DVD's are still out-selling Bluray/4K disks... which for i'd say, for all of us here, is just ludicrous.. why would you buy a DVD when you can get a 4K disk?  But it is happening, DVD sales are still stupid high. 

But 4K Streaming Vs 4K disk... today... not too much of a difference in the end.. convenience is a pro for streaming, but actually owning the title can outweigh that by a long shot..

Its an interesting subject.. I have my biases, I really do think unless you are pixel peeping side by side screens, when you watch content you won't be able to tell the difference between Apple 4k DV stream and a 4K DV disk.. but YMMV - and is very debatable.
