As explained in separate correspondence, I am somewhat beyond my funding
for Maxim, though my wife is often very understanding.... I could not
really add yet another program to the 'must have' list though. I was
recently able to upgrade my hardware on a one-off situation (a small
inheritance) and expected to add $200 for upgrading to AAv3, when I
received advice from a Maxim user.
Thanks to all for comments.
