My tale is probably going to have all of you shaking your heads and saying, \"I could have told you that.\"
I just bid on what seemed to be a new, boxed copy of Sound Forge 7.0 at ebay. Already I can hear you drawing in breath through your teeth and sighing, \"...never buy software at ebay.\" But I didn\'t know that.
I received a copy of Sound Forge on a beat up, unlabelled CD-R, from some jerk who is too much of a coward to respond to my subsequent e-mails. So I\'m sat here, having thrown considerable money at it - enough to feel like I should own Sound Forge - and a copy which will probably work just fine...
...I can\'t tell you how tempting it is to just install the sucker, but I\'m afraid I believe in total honesty. Anyway, let this serve as a cautionary tale to anyone else who may chance across what looks like a real bargain at ebay. Don\'t do it. Just save up and buy it from the cheapest retailer you can find.
