Hey William,

The basic idea Ken Used was that his app "phones home" every now and then.
Checking for updates.
Also, what I forgot to mention, is that, if there is no internet connection a counter starts.
In my solution the app stops working when the counter hits 5. THEY MUST connect to the internet then.
Before the 5 is hit at each start of the application a nagging screen comes up telling that correct operation might not be possible because the app must check for updates.
