Answering this question reminds me of the old Sunday School song: “soon and very soon we are going to see the King.”   Been singing this song for over 50 years and soon as an element of time has not changed much in 50 years- other than I still sing- soon and very soon we are going to see the king.

+1 Yes singing "soon and very soon we are going to see the King" (while birth pangs increase in intensity and frequency). Day 10-10-2020 (last day in temporary shelter to celebrate dwelling in God's Presence) is a Joyous Jewish Holiday that begins daily praying for winter rains (perhaps Lake Kinneret will be overflowing for Pesach seder on Saturday 27 March 2021 evening).

don't get addicted

Too late Embarrassed

I have broken my addiction. Was forced to. Will try and stay clean for the rest of this year and next.

If too many of us brake our addiction will Logos stay in business?

Addiction?  I'm only 5500 in the hole right now... I can quit any time I want to... errrr... OK.. so perhaps I spend a bit too much on my Bible software....I owe Accordance too.  Wink  It isn't really an addiction....it's a lifestyle...yeah that's it. Angel  LOL

I anticipate the holiday season to bring us Logos 9.... but with this Covid floating around, it might throw things off a bit.  The only bad thing about a new version is having to start over again building up your collection with the new base packages that come with it. Perhaps it will be a nice surprise and only a few hundred will throw me back into Collector's again. I am sometimes a bit stunned when I see I could trade my Logos library for a mid level full size SUV.  The SUV will plummet in value overnight and break down at some point, whereas the value of knowledge increases.  That's how I justify it anyway.  :-)

It is always helpful to exemplify Christians with demonstrable self-control.

it was the 'having' that blew your cover.  ;-)

And in (another) fact, you can buy the upgraded features (and maybe some interesting books), and never install the new software (effectively paying Logos for their hard work, but remaining happily nested on the older version). Smiling.

There are lots of things I haven't added to my library because they're expensive. There are a lot of resources that are worth $1-5 USD to me that FL sells for a lot more than that at regular price. So a collection that sells for $100 now that gets included in an L/V9 base package (for ~$10) might suddenly be worth it to me even though I'd never buy it even at 50% off its regular price.

Thanks, Sin', now I understand. There are, of course, many reasons to buy resources; bargains being one fo them. My point was that it is always a choice and never a compulsion.

Some forum posters appear to think that they must 'upgrade' their libraries with each release of the engine in order to maintain some sort of status.

I hadn't noticed the dot either. So I went and checked an, indeed there it was! I hastily clicked on the 'Consider Upgrading'

The cheapest offer was over $2000. I didn't spend long considering. I will have to manage without the comfort blanket.

(BTW I have often heard folk referring to 'LA' in relation to the USA. Didn't realise it stood for 'Logos Addiction'. Seems to pop up all over the place and not always in context. Bit like 'Factbook' really.

My main interest is ”what kind of new books can I get for my library?” I seldom use the tools that come with Silver and up.

All of my "dots" are green, however, it suggested L8-Platinum (which I already have AND THEN SOME) for $1430 and it would add "0" resources to my library OR I could spend $1840 and go to Portfolio and add 897 resources...gee, I'm having difficulty wrapping my mind around spending $1430 for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING or spending $410 more to get almost 900 new resources (that I probably don't need and probably wouldn't use very often). Zip it!
