CopyDoubler details

Send Article to a Friend

CopyDoubler details were lousy in last week's review. We gave the wrong AOL address and upgrade price. Sigh, that's what happens when you believe a database. The real AOL address is FIFTHGEN@aol.com and the upgrade price should be $19.95. If you snag the demo copy, which only works for three weeks, it includes an offer for $19.95 that's good until 31-Dec-93, which is the cheapest way to get CopyDoubler if you can't upgrade.
