NimbleText 2.0: More Than Twice The Price!
The latest release of NimbleText is a major milestone, took a lot of work, many bus trips.
As a user of the product, I feel it's good now. I don't want to say it's complete -- because I know how big the backlog still is -- but there's a sort of completeness to it. If no more features were added for a while, I think that would be okay.
I even wrote one of those feature checklists you see in all the expensive professional software suites. --->

That was it! Enough was enough. I shut the browser! Slam! Opened the html editor! Whoosh! A search, a replace-all, and it was done in less than a minute.
The price went from $9.95 to $19.95. Double! DOUBLE! Plus five cents!
And I don't regret it for a second. At $20 it's still a steal. I'm seriously thinking of going to $50. Who knows where this madness will end? $75? $78.50?
I have unleashed a pricing monster!
