No problem !
I don't have it but I could also be interested. I remember beeing turned off because a borrowed shuffle deck in use would not work, but I am not sure...

Hi Nicolas,

A "borrowed shuffle deck in use" does work with COSMOS Impromptu. If you have any further questions feel free to PM me.

Before you purchase 'Cosmos' (Greg Rostami's version of Paul Curry's Out of This World), you should be aware of a few things. First, the preview of the effect on his website is edited and different from what you will receive. Second, there's no newly-discovered, revolutionary methods here, if that's what you're hoping for. Third, if you decide to purchase Cosmos, don't use the Paypal option or you're in for numerous hassles. Why the Paypal option is even offered is beyond me - a high-tech guy like Greg should have fixed this. If you haven't figured it out yet, I wasn't happy with this download purchase at all. It's certainly not worth $20, maybe $10 or $5. Save your money. Keep in mind that this was my experience and my opinion. Other folks have probably loved it.

When purchasing Cosmos off of Mr. Rostami's site, there are two ways to pay - by credit card or Paypal. I paid using Paypal. Normally, when making a purchase such as an instant download, you are either directed to or are sent by email everything that you need. In this case, you receive nothing automatically. I had to email back and forth with Greg to get all of the necessary elements to finally play the video (video files, passwords to unlock the DRM, etc.). It was a hassle for me, not to mention Mr. Rostami, who had to babysit the whole process. I'm sure that he has better things to do - I know that I do. The whole process took about 30-36 hours. So much for instant gratification - isn't that why we all buy instant downloads? The Paypal should not be offered unless the process is completely automated, which is not that difficult to work out. To be fair, Greg was polite and probably answered my emails as fast as he could.

I bought Cosmos years back; now I want to remind myself of it, but I've lost the password. I tried emailing Greg but got no reply....but maybe he's moved on? It was several years ago...can anyone shed any light?

Just for the record; Greg has sorted me out.

I'd add; when the trick came out there was quite a bit of negative response to the misleading video. Frankly, that negative response to the video was justified - it was misleading.
However, looking at this thing after the passage of time, Greg had some brilliant thinking in this version; the sales video was wrong, but his method is interesting.

Thanks, Greg!
