    Strange, I bought TCPView Pro, had problems with it, went to winternals.com, registered, posted a message, got no worthwhile response, posted again, posted again suggesting that they took my money so they really should response, and suddenly there's no BBS.

    I love this kind of customer support, don't you?  :(

    Blaze, I'm amused at the thought of hitting them with a rocket luncher.  Would you suggest spam sandwiches?  :D

    I need a picture, Mickey.  My company's firewall won't let me get to springnals (www.springnals.com) and I didn't say winternals had gone, only that they've got rid of their support BBS.

    Can I have pretty colours in the picture, please?  :)

    Duh.  Duh.  Oh, Mickey, how can you be so cruel?  Duh.

    Mickey;
    You are so tricky;
    Now you've made me;
    Feel pretty sickey.

    Worse, say;
    Upon this wretched day;
    You've got support from;
    The poet Fanj.

    That's a soft spot you are hitting here  :cool:.

    Kavafis, Bloem, Emely Dickinson, Eijkelboom,  Dante, T.S Elliot, Shelley, Keats, Neruda, Verlaine...and some others are my favorite ones.

    Might start a new site one day only devoted to poetry.

    Alas: this board is not the place!

    regards.

    My top, about, to blow, am I;
    TCPView's in my eye;
    Just found out the demo works;
    The licensed version's writ by jerks;
    Alas, a 14-day trial;
    Is better than the paid (something licensed that rhymes with trial but doesn't work).

    I'm hopping mad!  Somebody stop me before I contact TheRegister!

    Sad-tox,

    click "quote" and if you want the whole quote, just put your reply beneath. If you want to quote a part, delete the part you don't want to quote.  ;)

    regards,

    For completeness, here's the end of the story:

    TCPView Pro 14-day demo is V1.06

    When I bought it, they supplied V1.03 - incompatible with XP

    I wrote to their support two days ago, they asked for proof of purchase, I supplied same, and they e-shipped the licensed V1.06 copy to me yesterday.  Works just fine.  :)
