Do you live in the wilds of Whereizitagin, hundreds of miles from the nearest telephone pole? And is satellite Internet prohibitively expensive? Now you can have Poser 12 Early Access officially mailed to you on a USB key, along with its gigabytes of free content.
Once installed you would still have to be online to activate Poser, and of course it will also ping the registration server periodically. Thus the USB key method should not be thought to be a wholly offline solution, for someone with no regular Internet connection. Still, it could be useful for some with a slow and/or tightly-metered mobile-phone connection. Though bear in mind you may need to order another USB in the Autumn, if Poser comes out of Early Access then. I’m guessing U.S. software export restrictions may also kick in if you want it sent to dodgy nations such as Iran, Cuba, Syria etc.
The outback or mountaintop-dwelling Poser artist who prefers Poser 11.3 will instead want the $80 Poser Pro 11 serials from NeoWin (resellers for Bondware, the new top-level owners of Poser). Then you’d get someone to do the downloading of 11.3 to a USB and the snail-mailing of it to you. Again, there would be online activation needed, and it also pings home periodically.
