The very fact that you have a list as long as you do shows that the product
is not yet ready, and should still be promoted as a beta at best. Dale is
obviously extremely busy and unable to handle the problems outstanding we
had to wait 1 week before I could get any response to 3 urgent emails that I
pleaded with them for a reply to. (And I didn't get a reply to any of them)
I finally got a response by ringing 2 days in a row. Now to be fair Kurt
listened to my problems and advised me of an update 2.5.255 which I
downloaded and my installation is still up the shit. I can't consolidate
properly. So yes my advice is DON'T DO IT.
