Too late to ignore.
I sympathize with the general gist of your comments, which support my reasons for Toast 8 being the last Roxio product I intend to purchase. Mostly, repeated failures to get their help for just one issue the only time I'd ever needed it (after exhausting alternatives) was incredibly frustrating.
Glad to hear 8.0.5 is at least partly functional on SL. At this point the only thing that could tempt me to purchase a newer version would be if I was certain the significant resource/memory problems I've had were resolved, which I seriously doubt.
