    "works great! It was WAY too cool (as well as funny...)"

    August 21, 2011  |   By Astara

    Pros

    works great -- doesn't require resetting OS clock -- works great for "FREEWARE" that is built to expire!

    Cons

    hmmmm. for the price, zilch. BUT, I think the interface expects other font that my 'larger-than-tiny' fonts, as edges of calendar are cut off.
    Also, must create shortcut to program you want to run (con?...well. some might think it so...).

    Summary

    Worked great and provided amusement.
    Went to wikipedia article on Munsell_color_system.
    (htpp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munsell_color_system), which had external links related to article at bottom. One pointed to current owners of the Munsell system and:
    Munsell to L*a*b* Conversion Freeware, a Windows application for converting Munsell renotations to CIELAB coordinates.
    ---
    Looked interesting, (along w/other links)...tried it, installed it...
    Said it was expired (expired 5 years ago!). ...LAME...Freeware
    w/expiration?!?!

    Oh, *cough*, excuse me, it did come up and tell me there was a new version available at someplace@web... (not going to mention them here and give them any traffic!) --- Where I hoped to find a 'current'/non-expired version.

    BZZZTT.

    You have to pay for the new versions... The Freeware version was meant to be a 'tease'...and it expired 12/31/2006.

    Way to *($! me off!...

    At first -- I just set my system clock back to 2006, .. that worked
    fine... So then I tried to goto Win7's prop page and look for
    compatibility options to set the clock back. Nothing -- you can set the OS back, but have they you might need to actually have the date set to before Win7 came out as well? Duh... (*keep sr8 face here)...

    So looked for a shortcut maker on web that would add this compatibility feature -- and found this.

    Was very amusing -- set time on the app to Dec 31, 1906, and saw it come up and display a message 36526 days till expiration -- which was a cool (though inaccurate) way to see length of year to 2 decimal places...365.26 ... (real value is 365.2425)...
    Maybe that's why it expired? didn't calculate the elapsed time properly? :-)
