As DLAD says, is $24 dollars too much, well I guess not if you want, need and use a programme. I don't like being cheated out of a lifetime subscription, it's happened too many times to me. The other annoyance is some of the upgrades, most of the time it's a waste of money, because the proggies I have work fine and I don't need anything else. "Upgrade to the new super deluxe version it has bells and whistles on" It's only $50 to you" I realise these companies have to make money, but it all seems a bit underhanded sometimes. As for passwords, I use a simple system with a code that rotates when I want to change it and no, I ain't got a fantastic memory. (now what was I going on about?) Oh yeah, it's great if you are well off, a few dollars here and there doesn't really notice, when you are not well off, it adds up to a huge amount. I do like to eat occasionally.
