    I've just downloaded 4.0.3 for OS 9.2.1 but when I try to run the program, a box pops up telling me that this trial copy expired on 2/9/2003. Today is 12JUL05.

    How do I trial the program for 15 days as stated in the ReadMe file?

    Apparently Fetch was tried on that computer back in 2003. We tried to program Fetch to ignore trial periods in the distant past, but there's a bug that keeps that logic from working (the bug is fixed in Fetch 5, but Fetch 5 requires Mac OS X 10.2.4 or later, so it is not an option for you).

    So the best you can do now is to leave that message on the screen for 15 minutes or so (one second for every day since the expiration date), at which point the Next Time button will be enabled and you can proceed. You will want to avoid quitting Fetch, since there will be a delay each time you run it.
