Yup, I'm gonna get Pe-2. I need it. In order to get my ki-27 I'm gonna need it.

I am not afraid of StarForce, not that it's on it, or BoontyBox, or even that really weird guy who drinks at the bar I go to. I'm just not afraid. I nearly died at 32, that really wasn't that scary actually, I just dealt with it. Maybe I have an altered perception here, but downloading Pe-2? What could go wrong? What is Ubi gonna come by and shut my kidneys off again? I don't think so. Risk? Jeez, any kid at the local shopping mall could get the info off your credit or debit card when they swipe it, and you'd never know about it. Direct Deposit for your paycheck? Ever think about how many folks know your account so it can get routed? that info gets stolen regularly. What's the difference? My PC gets screwed up? Format C: bay-bee, I've done it before. Pain in the @ss? Sure! So is getting up for work. I'll tell you what, it's less of a pain in the @ss than urinating blood, and I've done both. Not at the same time, though.

I don't even have high-speed internet. I am forced to use dilaup at home. No choice, landlord won't let me install anyhing else. No argument, tell her, not me. Not my house. But I'll figure out a way to get it. I'm gonna have the Ki-27 when it comes out, dammit, you mark my words. No pisant piece of d/l software is stopping me either. I have a goal, and I require certain things to reach it. Pe-2 is the next stepping stone.

Sorry folks, no hysteria is stopping me. I'm a grown-up, a rational intelligent adult who weighs his options and the risks and accepts responsibility for his actions. My bank account is no more at risk with the Pe-2 download than it is when I order car parts over the flippin telephone line and give them a credit card order. Any co-worker could overhear me do that and write down the numbers, and anybody who knows anything about anything could tap the parts counter's hard line to a recorder and get that info all day long. Anyone at the bank could be doing a little extra-curicular project with recording numbers and selling the info. A bunch of hackers right now are trying to do this same thing with your direct deposit accounts

None of this scares me, so why should something as stupid as BoontyBox deter me? No reason. I'll be getting Pe-2


I don't think those that aren't getting it are dumb, or scared, or whatever. I just can't understand your logic. To me, it's like being worried that it might rain, because you need to water the lawn. There's no difference except for the perception

Chuck's entitled to his opinion, and has the right to vote with his feet, his credit card, or whatever symbol of his economic might.

Actually, that's all any of us can hope for; not any heavy-handed attempts to control how we think or how we vote with our CCs, feet, etc.

Well done you.

I'm coming around to that way of thinking too, but only because there's enough information out there now on how to easily remove that BountyBugs nonsense from my system (and Oleg's .exe files!) afterwards. Can't just accept that nanny (or Ubi!) knows best in this instance I'm afraid!

Good luck!

Good for you Chuck. Let us know how it goes (good or bad).

I find waiting and seeing is at times a prudent approach, especially with UBI products.

I feel for you brother.



Hey all- when I get Pe-2, if it doesn't work out, I'll just report what happened. I have no expectation of problems. Somebody wiser than me once said if you go into a proposition expecting to fail, you got what you deserved http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

hi Chuck,

Great post and echoes my feelings. I downloaded on Friday and have no regrets nor did I have any fears.What's the worst that can go wrong? And if it did ubi would end up with all sorts of litigation.

I think there's a need for a few chill-pills and beers in in this forum http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Best Regards,

If you are unable to make a complete backup, backup 2 files.

il2fb.exe and files.sfs
