Use Once and Throw Away
If I paid for every useful program that wants $30 or $50 or $100, I'd never be able to pay my rent. So I find myself stuck...I want to help out the hard working programmers of the world, but can't always afford what they're asking. Your approach seems eminently reasonable to me, especially since I frequently find I need to use a program only once or twice.. BTW, downloaded and used the screenshot program [Screenshot Captor] the other day. That thing kicks ass over any other program I've tried!

Re: What books are you reading?

The Making of Prince of Persia by Jordan Mechner
https://www.amazon.c...trated/dp/0578627310

"Prince of Persia" was a pretty influential computer game for the Apple II and original IBM PC that game out in 1989 or so..

This book collects the journals and notes of the 19 year old kid who made the game.  Filled with little anecdotes of the time, etc.

Great stuff.
