[rt-users] Getting a little annoyed now

I had one look at it, and I'd rather not say what I think about it.... I
don't want to start any wars now...

US$1 = ZAR10 (Give or take a few cents).

With a bronze level support, I'm looking at US$6,000 for 4,000 tickets per
annum.  In ZAR, that's more than R60,000 for the year, costing me ZAR60 per
ticket.  In my books, this is completely bizarre.  Then, import duties and
bank charges needs to be added to the ZAR60K to get it out of SA, which will
probably end up making ZAR60K more in the region of ZAR75K. But hey, third
world countries always gets ripped off, so what's new.  I mean, a complete
decent computer, costs less than ZAR10,000... Just to give you an idea.

For ZAR60,000 I can almost buy myself a brand new car out of the box....
Now, you tell me... Are you rather going to invest the money to get a new
car, or pay someone ZAR60K for 1,000 support issues every year, that you're
probably going to use maybe three times... I mean, once a system's been
installed, there's generally very low maintenance on it, which makes me
believe that paying ZAR60K for 1000 tickets is useless, seeing that I'll
over a year maybe have 10 tickets, if even that much.  What a nice waist of

I ran the old RT (2.0.9 if I remember correctly) without problems before...
Maybe I should just forget about 2.0.13 and go back to running the old
version... Save myself the grey hairs...
