Uno is a shareware information manager. This means that you only pay
for it if you decide to continue using it. If you don't think that it
is worth the asking price, delete the program, or better yet give it
to someone who might find it useful. However if you do decide to keep
Uno after a 2 week trial period, please send $20 (see REGISTRATION
FORM on next page) to:

Useful Software

Waterloo, Ontario
Canada, N2J 3Y3

The shareware fee pays for unlimited use of Uno by a single person.
You are allowed (and encouraged) to give away copies of Uno with the
understanding that each person receiving a copy is under the same
obligation as you are to send in the shareware fee if they decide to
keep it. You can upload THIS VERSION ONLY of Uno to other computer
systems, either free or commercial, as long as this archive remains
intact, with the copyright and shareware notices unchanged.

Useful Notes can be installed on LANS. In such situations I ask only
that the LAN Administrator estimate the maximum number of people that
will be making "simultaneous" use of Uno and pay the shareware fee
based on that estimate. I do not expect that the limit be closely
monitored or enforced (I appreciate how much trouble that would be),
but I do expect that the estimate will be revised (and additional fees
paid) should a substantial increase in the number of nodes on the LAN
and Uno usage occur.

No guarantee is made as to the functionality of this software; however
it has been tested quite thoroughly by a large number of people. If
it doesn't do what you want, don't keep it and send no money.

Please support the shareware concept. Shareware means useful programs
at a fraction of the cost you might pay for them commercially. You
can try-before-you-buy, and you are not subjected to copy protection
or other atrocities that many software vendors inflict on their
customers. Software updates can also be distributed much faster than
is possible through normal channels.

Any questions, suggestions, or bug reports, can be mailed to the above
address. Enjoy.
