[aprssig] UiView32 Registrations

Maybe I'm not understanding the issue.  From what Stephen just said, it
sounds like the ONLY reason registrations are being processed is to allow
the program to run.  Nothing is done with the registration information and
no payment is required.  It hasn't been possible to remove the registration
code requirement because Roger had the source code destroyed.

If that's not the case, then please explain to me why registration is still
a requirement.

I'm simply offering to patch the binary executable to no longer require the
registration code.  That code apparently serves no further purpose, and
imposes an administrative burden on those who have to issue the codes.

I'm not trying to cheat anyone out of anything.  I PAID for my copy of
UI-View32.  I'd be happy to donate to a cancer research organization if I
hadn't.  I'm just trying to make life easier for new users and the
registration volunteers.

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.
