Virtual Painter no more?!?

It looks Virtual Painter is not longer available. The site has pages missing. The store no longer works. I tried to log into my account with them, but the login link leads nowhere. Also, I emailed them 3 days ago and have heard nothing back.

Here's a remaining page if you want to poke around: . But the place seems dead.

Some info about the company:

P. & A. America, Inc. was established in Los Angeles, CA, July 2000. Our parent company, P. & A., Inc. is a Japanese company taking care of the licensing, localization, production, promotion and distribution of software for the Japanese market. P. & A. America, Inc. takes care, with our partners, of the licensing and distribution of software in various markets around the world.

Re: Virtual Painter no more?!?

VP was one of the first plugins I ever bought. Still like the "oil painting" effect which has more of a watercolor look to me. Triangles and Rectangles are fun to play with too. None of the other effects ever did that much for me.
