Hi technical,
 I'm not sure, if this test is useful at present;
seems not all servers are up yet due to the poweroutage in east-US

great stuff though.. :) ;)

http://www.vtoy.fi/jv16/programs/jv16pt.zip - jv16 PowerTools 1.3.0.196.zip

Is it possibel this great program is shareware ?

It states it's a 30 day trial when installing :(

The message is also in the right hand corner of the program itself.

Don't worry about it mate !!

Maybe it is indeed a full license free version ,and the message is only a
warning without any value. (i hope so...)

well, if  tommorow the program counts down, and say i have 29 days left, i'm doomed :)

I just give it a try. seems to work great.

How I hate this!: freeware becoming shareware...  >:( >:( >:(

Jv16 PowerTools 1.3.0.196
Jv16 PowerTools 1.4 No Longer Free: see http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,7518645~root=sware~mode=flat

Waldo says (and he´s correct) that it´s imposible by now to download the earlier version (see below in foruns)...

Ok Omik, I agree with you. It´s just my opinion but why don´t developers does not make the applications a shareware just from the begining? The user is caught in a trap: use the program, like it, customize it and suddenly he (or she) is left alone... I think this is not a respect to the user... Anyway, they can do what they want but this is my right to hate the ones who does things like these  >:(

" The user caught in a trap"
You do have a point, Tech.
I would love to use the paid one, but 30 usd. is a rather hefty pricetag IMO.
But perhaps its just me? Hope they keep the free one too.
