    Hey buddy you gotta get your stuff straight. Your not talking about LMS because LMS does not have a "Pro" Version. I think you are talking about Gopher Pro.

    LMS is awesome stuff. Please get your facts straight before you go bashing.

    I have been thinking of checking out LMS myself. It is a great concept. The only thing that concerns me with an on line system is what if one day they decide to take the site down, or go out of business? What happens to all that info in our database? I would assume we would not have access to it any longer. So, we could be SOL with no notice. I may be wrong on this, but that was the first concern that came to my mind.

    You can download backup's. That was one of my suggestions to them :D Also I think it will be around for a long time. Seems like a pretty stable site/business.
