I just went to revonline and received a prompt to go to the store for a 
release code. Hmmmm!!!!!!!

To be frank, I would have expected this to be included in the cost of a 
license or even the annual subscription.
33 pounds (about 60 dollars) to have a pdf  that shows you how to implement 
a menubar. Come on!!!

OK, you should not expect to get something for nothing but I have a studio 
license and I have the annual subscription. I only bought the studio 
license because express was discontinued and I didn't want dreamcard and a 
7Mb player (I want executables). The annual subscription in pounds is £133 
= 249 dollars (I extended mine via the express upgrade so I got it cheaper 
to be fair). However, I would not expect to pay for the video to build a 
menu. I woudl pay for one to have a demo reamework for certain apps like 
databases, ftp, web servers etc. BUT not a menubuilder.

Mind you I can always ask here. :-)
