Hello Doug



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.
