Agreed. I'm surprised two things aren't already understood by those
who've been on this list for a while.
1. Registration is FREE. Just make a donation to the appropriate
'cause' afterward. (My mom died of cancer, my father of diabetes,
so I understand the need to donate for research.)
All you need do is contact the person in your area of the world who
has volunteered to register you.
2. The author of UI-View died last year. Think about it.
I don't say much on this SIG as someone in Europe is mirroring the SIG
without a care to SPAM - their files are open to spambots. But the
idea of 'cracking' UI-View, when registration is only an e-mail away,
is reprehensible to me.
