Just a side note, Landware apps weren't "registered" or protected in
anyway. You just paid them and they sent you full versions via email.
This one thing I love about their software. No hoops to jump though,
and if you needed to change newtons (due to hardware failure) you just
installed from a backup (or from the original pkg file) and you were
good to go, no serial numbers to misplace either.
