You do know that the skills required to do those aren't really similar, right? Also, what about the possibility of different people programming the time-out mechanism and time-out result than those programming the algorithm for compression and other such important aspects? Also, to elaborate on what I meant: the dipshits who programmed the trial time-out didn't have even the slightest clue how marketing works.
So you feel that the programmers can't even handle a simple time-out scenario, yet you are still confident enough in their ability to handle your files without corrupting them?
Also, I trust that they can competently compress files because firstly, it's pretty damn mainstream to compress with the algorithm, secondly, because it's been shown consistently that it works fine, and thirdly, I've actually fucking compressed shit with it, and it's always done what it's meant to do: compress without screwing up the files, yet that doesn't change the fact that they don't know jackshit about how to make people buy their products.
In hindsight, I feel you've actually misunderstood me. Reading your post again, it seems that you think I don't believe they can program a time-out function, which explains why you think the two mentioned facts are comparable. Well they quite clearly can, because I've seen it work. I've had the trial for more than 40 fucking days, as I've mentioned earlier, and the program began bitching at me once I had it for 40 days so it quite clearly works, and anyone who doesn't believe so probably has a severe mental handicap. If I understand you correctly, I believe it's safe to say you probably just skimmed through my post without paying attention to fine details.
I feel the need to edit this post again, because I quite clearly stated that the time-out sequence functioned properly in my previous post, and your painful misunderstanding (which I feel is quite blatantly obvious) is exasperating to an extreme degree. I quite clearly stated that it worked, but didn't work in favor of the developer of the program. I can't properly explain how exasperating your statement is so, I'll just type a string of "what" and "why" after this.
What, why, what, why, why, what, why, what, what, why, what, why, what?
