Anyone know whatever happened to this thing? It was originally mentioned here (http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=24722&perpage=15&highlight=cake&pagenumber=1). Has anyone ever used the final product?

Well your link goes nowhere, and a search turns up nothing.

Here's the status of InstantCake.

Last Summer, we halted the Beta because people weren't behaving like it was a Beta and were abusing our shopping cart.
We had about 100 registrants who we authorized to download the Beta for the types of systems they specified they had; unfortunately, when we opened up the server, several folks attempted to download every single version we had. While I completely empathize with the 'collector mentality' its not something I'm willing to personally fund with a pre-release version of our software which already created a bit of a stir when we first announced it.

So, we pulled the plug on the public beta, and have been testing it with a select group of customers.

With that said, we are hoping for a release towards the end of the year, if not sooner.

As a special bonus, we will be including LBA48 support for Series1 units, as well.
