: enter credit card, then wait for an email telling you where you can
: download the software you just paid for. The email is supposed to come
: right away, but in my case it took several days. I had to write to them
: asking about it.
: After you get that email, you download PHPed, install, then you have to
: go to their website and request an activation key. Then you wait AGAIN
: for that to arrive. According to the NuSphere website they try to get
: to it within 24 hours but the "maximum time" it can take is three
: business days.
: So in other words, if you pay for PHPed on a Saturday, you may not be
: able to use it until the following Wednesday.
: Also note that the activation key is good for only one machine. If you
: want to install it on your desktop workstation and also install a copy
: on your laptop, you will have to request another activation key,
: requiring another wait of up to three business days.
: None of these extraordinary delays or restrictions are revealed until
: AFTER you have submitted payment.
: As I said PHPed is definitely a good product with a larger set of
: features than almost every other PHP editor. So if you need a
: professional tool and don't like Zend the delays and hassles may be
: worthwhile to you. But you should know what you're getting into.
If you paid by credit card, and don't think you got what was orginally
claimed, then discuss it with the credit card company to see if they will
reverse the charges.
