    SaaS is extortion, and it sucks. I buy once and use it until it no longer works well enough to get the job done effectively, something remarkably better surfaces, or it stops working reliably. That applies to lots of stuff, but especially software and motor vehicles. Unless there is a truly compelling reason to buy a new software version, doing so is like flushing money down the toilet. I haven't seen any compelling reasons to buy a new version of anything from the Redmond Retards since Windows 7 SP1. And, claiming "better security" in most cases is a load of baloney... that's how they milk the cash cow.

    *Update. Totally forgot about this one. I used a Thumb Drive to download Simplix updatepatch.exe then to updatepack7r2 on several very similar machines within my smaller office. I took the same Flash, with the Full UpdatePack7R2.exe already downloaded to a friend's house w/ an older processor, threw in the thumb drive w/ UpdatePack7r2.exe (WITHOUT using updatepatch.exe, which of course uses the scan to DL updatepack7r2.exe geared more machine specific). :wacko: So the older machine was 'stuck' b/c of my dimwitted oversight. *doh*
    *Lesson, DL updatepatch.exe before updatepack7r2.exe EVERy time
    (although, is Simplix using updatepatch.exe anymore, or just updatepack7r2.exe direct download?). Last couple times I think i saw updatepack7r2.exe and no updatepatch prior?

    Sorry for dated post, but hope my oversight can help some other dummy like me :)
