    it the cd was covered in finger prints or what appear to be finger prints ,

  2. Looks like the distributor is currently in panic mode and is starting to
    do things by hand (or has always been doing so?) - That would freak me
    out, could you take a picture?

    Apparently it is not a 180 day trial - only a 120 day trial.
    Add to website issues - "misinformation"

    It appears the Trial is only good for 120 days and the info on the
    package is incorrect while the info on the Web site must be the correct
    information.

  12. In the past Server eval copies were usually 180 days and client evals were
    120 days.

    you always see in commercials who make $thousands a week from stuffing them?

    it in and mail it... heh heh..

  17. Yeah, maybe the blonde from CSI:Miami will shoot a bullet through it.. she
    has to shoot a gun once per episode.. it's in her contract.
