And for the last time, CUT PGI some slack, THEY'RE WORKING ON IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They want your money, I can assure you! They don't WANT you to be all upset and emo and run off QQ'ing to all your friends. .t hey want you all here addicted to their money making love-child.

[disclaimer: I do not work for PGI. i *DO* work for a company that develops hardware and software in house, and explaining issues due to "software in development" is part of my job description. As a result, I understand intimately just how much of a P.I.T.A. even simple changes can be. if I seem like I'm biting everyone's heads off it's because I used up all my patience explaining it politely to our customers over. . and over. . and over. . . .]
