I've been trying to get back into my package in 
the Cheese Shop for over a year. The phone 
company changed my e:mail address and to make a 
long and frustrating story short I can't get back 
into the Cheese Shop to make changes to my file.

Time is money.  At some time you have to consider 
if it is worth it.  At least you have the name of 
your program listed.

I wish I could be more helpfull. I'll watch the 
responses you get from others.

Good Luck,
