Although this program was originally released as being free I have spent a
considerable amount of profitable time developing and revising to make it more
useful to a larger number of users.

With this in mind I am asking for $50.00 registeration fee for all five
programs. Upon receipt of this fee you will receive by mail or on
CompuServe via Email your user registeration number. With this number
you will be able to disable the opening screen.

If you have any problems or suggestions I can be reached at the address
below or thru Compuserve CIS 74620,1042.
