-= SHAREWARE CONCEPT =-

Even if you are new to this type software distribution it shouldn't
take you long before you realize why Shareware is becoming so
popular among users and software programmers.

Shareware is a distribution policy. It is not, as some users
consider, a classification of software. Shareware is created by
proficient programmers just like the retail software market. You
will find that there is exceptional and inferior Shareware software
just as there is good and bad retail software. The principal
contrast between Shareware and retail software is the manner in
which the user commits to the purchase of the software package.

With Shareware you can try the software before you buy. There is
no sales staff to aggravate you, no more driving around looking for
bargains, all you have to do is DOWNLOAD. Then you can sit back
and try the Shareware package on your own computer and in the
privacy of you own home. If you find that the Shareware package
doesn't suit your needs then pass it on to someone who might need
it. If, on the other hand, you find that the Shareware package
works for you then your final step is to send in the registration.

The Shareware Registration is not only required but by the same
token it will also help maintain the exceptional level of software
quality that the Shareware Authors have continued to produce over
the years. Without your assistance the Shareware Market would not
have endured. Numerous programs which are in the software market
nowadays would in no way have become accessible without the
Shareware marketing concept. Gratify this view by registering those
programs you truly use and by sharing them with others. Thanks for
your support.

use it, beyond the (14 day) evaluation period, then you are required

-= VERSION IMPROVEMENTS =-
over
Version 2.00

i) In order to deal with the variety of different speed at which
computers run now a days, it was necessary to implement some kind
of cpu speed verification procedure. Our first attempt didn't quite
live up to it intentions. Well, it did'nt even maintain a relative
runing speed and at the same time it managed to fault up the internal
clock. Needless to say, Ver. 2.01 should run at the correct speed
without any problems.

If you find any other bugs or just have some enhancement advice then
please drop us a line.
