Over the weekend there was a discussion about Ensign and it was thought that they didn't offer a free trial - it doesn't say anything about a free trial on the website. I contacted Howard today to see what the situation was and here's what he sent me... "Installing the program gives you a 1 week trial use period. After that we hope you will subscribe. The program use fee is $1.35 per day for the balance of this month, and then $39.95 per month thereafter until you notify Ensign billing you want to cancel. Use the built in Order form to initiate your subscription. If the status after installing shows 'Expired', click menu Setup | Security. Click the Enter Password button and type in this code to enable the program again: 87022291" Sorry but I can't find the thread with that discussion.
