For heavens sake, we don't all live in England and pay those prices. My Skye
is the equivalent of £18 a month, a taxi to town £3. Fuel £10 a week.
Equally our income is so much lower, so £23.95 is a lot of money to some of
us, especially when we're on a fixed income and have just paid for the
previous version of FH. I'm sorry you consider us to be whiners.

Sorry whiners, but I think the upgrade represents excellent value for money
and if it was ten times the price I would still pay it! If you have only
just got into the program, I am, sure the extra £20 quid in three months
time will be well worth it! I can say this with the hindsight of having
used other family history programs which do not record facts as well as FH.
Let's face it what does £20.00 buy nowadays that can keep you occupied for
hours and not cost you anything until the next upgrade? Now if like some
companies you were getting an upgrade every nine months.... and you had to
upgrade to get the bugs out of the program from the previous upgrade
If I was to moan about FH it would only be to say that I wish it had the
ability to print diagrams as PDFs as I used to in Family Tree Maker...
Well done the team at Calico Pie, Keep up the good work and thanks for
producing a fantastic program with excellent value and very few bugs!
