The true purpose of democracy is not to select the best leaders — a clearly debatable obligation — but to facilitate the prompt and peaceful removal of obviously bad ones.

Interesting.

I could see that being useful at times.
I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Has anyone actually tried it out yet?

I tried it, and found it easy to set up. It isn't of much use on trial software that only allows features until registered. It should work well with software that allows unlimited features until the expiry date. My AV software notice when it manipulated the date, I just ignored the warning.

Pretty much any trial software worth downloading anymore calls home to defeat this kind of thing. I'd also be surprised if it worked on any software that is enabled via startup of Windows. Another trick rather than doing this is to just set your system clock 100 years in the future, then install the trial software. After install just fix your clock. Then you won't have to fiddle around with this app every time you want to run your programs. But again, I'd be surprised if this worked on much software you'd be downloading.

JaJae, I used to do something like that but no so clever. When the 1 year trial period (in my case) ran out, I just set the calendar back by 1 year on my computer. It was no problem to mentally adjust the year on the system clock if I needed to.
Jefferson: I place economy among the first and important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.

The problem with that approach is that it throws off your anti-virus software.

Not only will it throw off antivirus software, but you will have difficulty with a whole host of other issues with your OS and web browsing like difficulty visiting websites with SSL protection (https).

Another novel approach is to actually purchase the product instead of stealing it. Radical, I know, but it works every time.
Different eyes see different things. Different hearts beat on different strings.
But there are times for you and me when all such things agree.

Because people who make software deserve to be rewarded for their intellectual property. Personally, I paid for all the software on my computer and I have some pretty expensive web design software...
