Despite some pretty extensive testing, we've yet to find any problems with the novelty puzzle cube thing that came in the box along with some folders and CDs

Does this conform to the "Even numbers" Release methodology, then Rob?

eg.
Version 2 :D
Version 2.2 :D
Version 3 :ermm:
Version 4 was ok
Version 4.6 passable
Version 5 :x:
Version 5.5 even more :x: :x:
Version 6 :)

so by Version 12 we might have something.... :lol:

Yep, Ver 3 was SCARY. There's no emoticons for someone crapping their pants.

However, the same cannot be said of the contents of the version 6 cd. What a pile of crap that is. :complain:

We were lied to by PROIV when they told us that version 5 and 6 could co-exist. It is evident that they cannot.

We've found so many issues upgrading to version 6 (from native 5.5) that it is laughable. We have spent over 10 man days trying to get it all to work and have so far logged nearly 20 separate faults, most of which are with 3rd line support, whatever the hell that is.

Add to all of that the upgrade fee, and it makes you ask yourself what do I get, apart from hassle, for my money?
