I'm thinking about upgrading, but the only extra features that I'd get
cost more besides the upgrade (i.e. are only available as additional
plugins to Cool Edit 2000).

Possibly, but I'm curious because I definitely had it working before,
just after I installed XP.  Perhaps something somewhere has overwritten
a crucial DLL or something.  Maybe a clean XP install would fix it.

Well it could even be a problem with fruityloops (seeing as it is
fruityloops that holds the lock on the file), in which case upgrading
Cool Edit would have no effect.

Unfortunately, I don't have an endless supply of money to keep
everything bang up to date.

Talking of keeping up to date... I've heard rumours about Imageline
developing a new product; dynamic loops or something.  Does this mean
that even though we have "free lifetime upgrades", the lifetime of
fruityloops could be shorter than we expect and have to shell out for
the new product which we are not entitled to under the free updates

Anyone got any thoughts on this.
