usb serial keys, sad face

Really tired of those things, just posted about a test with Windows 7. This is the reason I actually started doing the beta test. I can't tell you guys how many times I have gotten somewhere and then realized the old key was in left in the mac at home in my basement. I'm also really lazy and work upstairs in my room quite often. It helps having limited gear around-- it makes me focus more on the writing.

So I installed Windows 7 and Reaper on my pc laptop, no usb serial key! yeah! now, no more plugging and unplugging, forgetting, walking up and down stairs etc...

The mac downstairs is running Cubase 5 and other usb keys and I don't have to worry about it anymore.

If I need the wavs from downstairs or upstairs I get them off the server in my home and don't have to worry about those damn keys!

It is a great thing.
