I think it is a disgrace and very inappropriate to be discussing 
cracking the UI-View registration code.  What a sad day for Amateur 
Radio when we have to resort to this.  It is truely disgusting.

Do one of two things instead.  (1) Stop using the program and find 
something else to use.  (2) Find someone other than Steve who has enough 
time to deal with the registrations.  I think we should do (2) anyway, 
or at least find someone to assist.  But talking about crackin this code 
needs to stop right away.
