I would be grateful if you wouldn't do this. Apart from the fact that 
he didn't subscribe to open source coding, the main reason Roger had 
me destroy the source codes was to ensure that Dee and the remainder 
of the family were not put under undue pressure after his death.

It would be wrong intrude on Dee's privacy at this time and you would 
just be re-inventing the wheel. There are already several cracks in 
existence. Shortly before Roger's death I received the following in 
an e-mail from a KB7:-

 "Now as I kept reading on the message board that "you did not have a 
solution" I just snickered at the  fact that I can sit back and make 
reg codes all day long with almost no effort. As far as the 
validation codes that's a little more complicated and I am trying to 
simplify this now."

Roger and Dee released the registration keygen into my keeping on the 
understanding that new registrants should be requested to make a 
voluntary donation to cancer research and this is how it is being 

In order to provide timely response to registration requests a small 
group of volunteers is now providing the service. There are two 
registrars in the US, two in EU and two in Oceania. The instructions 
on the registration site are quite clear. Unfortunately, in their 
eagerness (or impatience) to get their registration code, many 
stations are duplicating their request to several registrars thus 
increasing an already heavy workload. A bit like WIDE7-7.

Although due to age, and frequent absences from home, I am, at my own 
request, no longer on the list of registrars I still have a 
responsibility to Dee and the family to see that registration is 
carried out in accordance with their wishes.

It is my intention to ensure that this is done.

The buck stops here!
