Re: Golden Time (novel series)[edit]

You don't have to worry about breaking any "rules"; that's what being bold is about. Familiarizing yourself with policies and guidelines will make editing smoother for everyone, though. The original problem with this article is that years ago it had not established it's notability yet; this is not the case anymore, and if you want to improve the article, please do.-- 00:04, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Re: BoundsChecker[edit]

Thanks for the feedback on this (and apologies for the slow reply :-). That's the depressing thing about BoundsChecker, it's a fantastic product that's being really badly hurt by the obnoxious licensing. I've been using BC for nearly twenty years, and after the early 2000's it became so painful to deal with that I've been keeping an old XP machine running with whatever the last sanely-licensed version was just to keep using it. Love the product, loathe the licensing. 806f0F (talk) 15:34, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

I won't disagree with you. Both Compuware and MicroFocus have been so zealous in their "protection" of the product (and the associated maintenance revenues) that it is frequently difficult even for legal users to make use of the product. But our hands are tied in this. The licensing systems are imposed on us, and we dare not provide a back door, even for ourselves. --Rpapo (talk) 15:42, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
