Unhappy more problems with the upgrade site

Hi folks,

I wonder if someone could help with this problem:

I have been trying unsuccessfully for three days to upgrade from MA v2.0 to v2.6 on the serenescreen site. When I try to log in I am told I have the wrong screenname or password.

When I have them send me an email with my password, I find that not even that works- says incorrect password (the one they just sent me!!).

So I try filling in a 'new' customer form; I am told that that name or card or passcword is already taken. Duh...

I had the same problem upgrading Goldfish Aquarium; it took several days and a flurry of emails.

This is getting irritating; as excellent as these screensavers are, you won't sell many if you keep blocking people out.

BTW, I did email tech support but haven't heard from them. If anyone know a way around this I'd be grateful.

Thanks for being patient while I vented ......

Prolific's keycode recovery website gives me fits.

Thanks for your help, Jim. A private Message has been sent.

It is an honor to correspond with the Master himself. I think you are the Michelangelo of Screensavers. But I bet you get that all the time

edit: BTW, this problem with the website is not unique to 'my info.' There is some inherent problem with the website which their webmaster needs to address, it seems to me. Thanks....

I've been too busy to take care of this yet. I'll get to it today.

There are many reasons that a Marine Aquarium user might be unsuccessful in using the Prolific database. Maybe they purchased before Prolific took over sales, or are trying to use a Goldfish or Sharks Key to upgrade to some version of Marine Aquarium, or they purchased from a foreign company like DiskKing in England, or their email address changed since they registered, or they are trying to upgrade one of the special cheapo 1.0 CDs, or a thousand other things. Josh can usually get it sorted out, but of course he's currently pretty swamped.

Unless it has changed, I find the Prolific keycode recovery site to be very confusing. Once I figured out how to login (it's not the most obvious button, from a user interface standpoint), I have several products listed there which have had their product names deleted or are somewhat vague.
