installous outdated version error

As usual, I tried using installous was shocked to find an error that said “outdated version” and the app quit! Following events lead me to know that the servers closed down! now says:

Goodnight, sweet prince.
We are very sad to announce that Hackulous is shutting down. After many years, our community has become stagnant and our forums are a bit of a ghost town. It has become difficult to keep them online and well-moderated, despite the devotion of our staff. We’re incredibly thankful for the support we’ve had over the years and hope that new, greater communities blossom out of our absence.

With lots of love,
Hackulous Team

vShare has some chinese text active but luckily the search and indexing is in english. Not much difficult to dig-in the apps, surpassing the Chinese text!
