THAT's for sure - if it hadn't been for Eilsa, NOTHING would have gotten 
done... I
HOPE she is one of the ones SSA kept. The biggest problem HAD to be Covey and 
his
minions... ALL we wanted was a RISC version of their STUPID install/key 
program. We
HAD 4.0.5 CISC but had upgraded to RISC and hadn't even THOUGHT this would be a
problem, They ACTUALLY said that they could NOT provide this - they had NO 
master
tapes or anything... WHAT a way to run a company - I can only hope for those of 
you
using SSA products, that the new folks at the top treat customers as CUSTOMERS 
and
not some necessary evil (although compared to what we went through, that might 
have
been nice..)

<One final note ... when we made the decision to go with MS4, 4.0.5 CD was just 
being
announced, and we had some inside sources at SSA confirming it was still 
vaporware.>

Yep, I STILL think 4.0.5 CD was done to avoid getting their BUTTS sued off; but 
to
basically say SCREW YOU to everyone who was paying YEARLY MAINTENANCE out the 
BUTT,
they decided to CHARGE for it - a PERFECT example of the type of clue less 
arrogance
that has gotten them in the mess they are in NOW...

I'm ok now... <BG>
