Hi Mark,

Whatever you do over there, do not let the powers that be
upgrade to Sage 2007 yet. And it won't be just you who
suffers either!  

I have never known such a bug infested release of any
software in all my life, and I've seen some hairy ones.

I guess we're kind of fortunate in having SageCover
(Software support), which costs us £105 per month.  But even
then, waiting time on hold has been in the region of 30
minutes at times.  Which is turn results in me being
thoroughly wound up after listening to things like "Land of
Hope and Glory", and the "1812 Overture" while on hold.

George.

Interesting George, we are using v12 I think, and it is sort
of OK with JFW 
8, but I have to to do a lot of navigation via my braille
display and could 
not use the product without the braille display.

Regards

Mark
