Yet another note - don't know if you know that already but I think it
should be mentioned in the compiling instructions:
The Beta has a Time bomb - it works until march 2005. This is in the
License Agreement (they know why they put it there as nobody reads
that - I only did because I wondered whether there actually was a time
The eula says:
NOTICE: THE SOFTWARE IS TIME SENSITIVE AND IS DESIGNED TO CEASE
FUNCTIONING ON MARCH 1, 2005. NOTICE OF EXPIRATION WILL NOT ACTIVELY BE
GIVEN SO YOU NEED TO PLAN FOR THE EXPIRATION DATE AND, PRIOR TO SUCH
EXPIRATION, MAKE A COPY OF AND REMOVE YOUR DATA THAT YOU WISH TO USE IN
Now I wonder whether it is actually permitted to set the clock back.
Didn't read the eula in-depth though so I'm not sure about that ;-)
