Dean, 

Yes, hacking is wrong and inappropriate.  While I understand your repsonse, it 
is 
also inappropriate and you jump to unjustified conclusions.  I'd bet dollars to 
doughnuts that Guy's company doesn't owe SSA dime one.

My employer has a valid, user based license to run BPCS.  Remember, we are user 
based, not machine based.  Yet, SSA wants 5 figures to issue a key for a 
machine 
upgrade we are planning.

My approach to this will be through law and equity, and I would suggest the 
same for 
Guy.  I will pay lawyers long before I ever cut one check to SSA for what I 
already 
own (and have paid for).

--Chris
