Every single contest software you use, including CT, is a work in
progress.  I was involved as one of the first beta testers for both CT and
NA.  I used both through many changes and bugs.  Instead of complaining
about bugs in software I paid for, I instead used my energy in a positive
way to help find bugs and make suggestions on enhancements.  

There must be a reason you bought this program.  If CT filled your needs
completely, then you wouldn't have bought WriteLog.  Given the stage in
development of this software, I think it is a FB product worth every penny
you paid for it.  

Maybe you wrote this mail in a fit of frustration and will be more
reasonable after thinking it through.  I've been known to do the same, and
always regret not waiting a day before hitting the send button.
