Problems? Contact me by posting a message to my attention
(i.e. Attn: Dreamless...) in alt.binaries.cracks (that's a

is particularly important. Make sure you have the right
version of the program, though. (I don't have much time for
cracks these days, so don't be surprised if your messages go
unanswered; I read all, though.)
