No offense and I'm not inflamed.

I just wanted to let you know why the pricing is what it is.

Situations are different for each. I on the other hand think the  
pricing is very good compared to the number of hours it takes to  
create these programs and the net return. It is a passion, not a get  
rich or retire early scheme. Volume speaks hear, sell more then you  
can lower the price.

Boisy and I spent a WHOLE summer of our time debugging and testing  
SuperDriver and the SuperIDE interface. We had some heated  
conversations but in the end it was all worth it.

Points noted.
