It's about midnight on Friday here in the Central US. I leave Sunday on a one-week business trip, so I'm outfitting my laptop with all my NI stuff, including a few Kompakt-based virtual instruments from a couple developers. With some luck, I'll get some music done in my spare time.
And, as luck would have it, NI's registration server isn't responding. Tomorrow is a full day, with no time to keep checking to see if NI is on its feet again. Most of the software/soundware I have now installed will time-out halfway through my trip.
Somebody tell me, again, how this registration song & dance DOESN'T penalize, inconvenience, and passively harass honest users? I'm not a full-time pro, so I don't stand to lose any money, but regardless, it's wrong that I won't be able to use what I paid for.
I'm sure I'm the ONLY ONE, so pardon my little vent here. I also posted this on...uh....some other forum, but the vent didn't yet feel complete.
