I bought a lifetime XYPlorer license and used that for a couple of years there. That fell off a bit but ever since dual pane was introduced it's a mainstay (except at work where we can't use anything but Explorer).
Renegade, if everytime you go out you are getting bad service and paying $15 a drink then you are clearly going to the wrong places.
Also being from Australia, I find the idea of mandatory tipping strange. I'll often round up so I don't get a pocket full of change but that is out of convenience and at my discretion. Feeling an obligation to supplement someone else's wage would make me feel uncomfortable.
It may be time to cull the reviews as some are badly dated. For example I went to check out what the good folks here thought was the best image manager. I was wondering why ACDSee got the nod then I saw the review was from 2005! That is old to the point of being misleading. Time to update or archive.
