Prices have changed since the previous release, first because now
the NON-commercial users also must pay for a license, second because
the US dollar has a very low transfer rate.

which may result from the use of the FileDoor-package;
- The FileDoor-Package is a "shareware program" and is provided at no charge
to the user for evaluation. Feel free to share it with your friends,
but please do not give it away altered or as part of another system.
The essence of "user-supported" software is to provide personal
computer users with quality software without high prices, and yet to
provide incentive for programmers to continue to develop new products.
- If you find this program useful and find that you are using and
continue the use of the FileDoor-package after a 30 days trial period,
you must register the FileDoor-package as described below;
- Send a postcard to Robert W. van Hoeven, with your address,
net/node number and 'FileDoor v2.01 registration' on it. The
exact address is in the header of this documentation;
- Anyone distributing the FileDoor-Package for any kind of remuneration
must first contact the Author at the address above for authorization;

to the registered users;

- After the normal trial period of 30 days, you must register the soft-
ware (see REGISTER.XFD) or you must remove it from your PC;
- Comments, suggestions and bug reports are welcome and will be answered
as soon I have the time to do so. You can send me a letter of leave a

FileDoor is cardware. This is an agreement between Stig Jacobsen and
myself. This means that you can use FileDoor for free if you send me
a normal (no netmail/echomail) postcard or letter.
If you like the product very much, and feel you want to pay something
for it, you can always send a donation to the above address. This will
be used to buy upgrades for compilers, utilities and will have a posi-
tive effect on the technical standard of FileDoor.
If you dislike the idea of a donation to me but still feel you want
to do something, you can send your donation to a charitative organi-
sation. This means that you still must send me a postcard to let me
know that you are using FileDoor.
Already registered users don't have to send a card but I would like
it when you do. Part of the deal was that Stig kept his cards and
I have to build a new collection.
Other DISP-products like MTS, MTA, QFV and such each have different
rules for registration and don't have to be cardware.
