No, none whatsoever FD. However, the fact that it is portable caught my eye immediately.

Perhaps you could enlighten us on this one, after you have tried it out?

Cheers.....Jim

Hi Jim,

Well, I could tell you if it worked for me or not (which will probably be far from proper testing it).
I must admit, the list of features is impressive and I agree, portable always makes S/W more appealing, if not inviting.

I have the portable of it and found it does some strange things - like not saving settings...just a few things...and just annoying enough that I want to find a contact and ask about them...but haven't gotten a 'round tuit' yet !!!

Otherwise I like it alot and will hopefully use it alot once I get the queries about it answered, if possible.
