  • How-Tos: Reinstalling Software Leads to Loss of Key Feature

    I bought an audio editor called WavePad from software maker NCH in February 2010. It worked fine until a month ago, when I received messages saying that the "14-day trial was about to expire," though I'd purchased the software already. I contacted customer service at NCH and spoke to someone who restored my software, but then the crossfade feature (which I use often) didn't work. At this point I broke down and bought an NCH priority-support package. For reinstalling my version of WavePad, the company sent me a .dmg file for a Mac, which wouldn't open on my Windows computer. After a number of unfruitful calls, I still can't get the help I need. So I'm asking you for help.

  • News: How Open Source Licenses Affect Your Business and Your Developers

    For most of the 2000s, copyleft licenses (in particular the GPLv2) were the most popular choice for new open source projects.
