Anybody got this to?

i got an email, from Fogcreek, for upgrading the CityDesk Home Edition to CityDesk Professional for only $99. But i am one of those users who took the CD1 to CD2 offer back in August 2003. ???

Yep - I emailed back and asked about it.  Joel wote back saying that the cupon generator went a little nuts.

Got it too...

What, the email program has a mind of its own?

It's a blanketing of current users to mine for more revenue.

In the 1.0 days, back when there was a 1.0 and 2.0, when somebody bought the home edition we used to wait a couple of months and ask them if they wanted to upgrade to the Pro edition.

After 2.0 shipped, nobody had home edition any more, so that email never went out.

Then for some reason we still haven't been able to figure out, as a part of upgrading the way support contracts for FogBUGZ are handled for large customers, the email coupon mailing program suddenly decided to start asking Home users if they want the Pro version again, never having been taught that everybody got the free upgrade when we switched over to 2.0.

Which just goes to show you... well, it doesn't show anything. :)
