Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

Shortly after Lotusphere, there will be a general price increase for the Midas Rich Text LSX and Midas Rich Text C++ API.  The last time there was a general price increase for the Midas Rich Text LSX was when the United States was still trying to get over the image of then-President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinski, and Lotus Notes users were still trying to get over the image of weird people all over the world holding up I Am posters.  Lotus R5 was the "new" version of Notes, and this blog hadn't been dreamed up yet.

Times change.  Prices change.  (Oil was not quite up to $25 a barrel back then)  Thankfully, ad campaigns change.  The cost for support gets higher.  The product is filled with more and more new features.

But you still have almost a month to miss out on the price increase.  Better yet, you can buy the Midas 4.0 licenses now and probably use them for the next two to three years without worrying about a major upgrade.  You can even upgrade your Version 3.x licenses if you like at the current price.  You can even get an official quote now if you can't get your company to spring for the upgrade that quickly.  But no complaints after Lotusphere about missing your chance.  You can't say I didn't warn you, because I just did.

The excitement about Lotusphere must be building.  There have been over 1500 downloads of our Lotusphere 2008 Sessions db already.  It doesn't hurt that IBM put a link to the page, but there are lots of hits from Alan Lepofsky's blog post and Ed Brill's blog post, as well as a variety of other blogs.  Thanks to all for getting the word out!
