    WOW! Will check that out!
    UPDATE: Be careful just where you download it from. Many sites have a ton of junk added in you may not want. Server also down. Maybe overload.

    They may be getting slammed. I signed up pretty soon after I saw the article.

    I retried the signup link in Chrome and it worked. Perhaps there is some issue with using Firefox to sign up. I tried Firefox right before Chrome and still saw the "Uncompleted License Key request" message.

    I tried quite a few times last night and never got past the registration key page.

    Tried again just now and it worked.

    Well at least they did not get a credit card number so they can't rob us after 7 days. Lets hope not, but you do have a good point.

    I signed up with no problem. Perhaps if one entered a business name, etc., it might work. :)

    You didn't hear it from me.
