      Will you be offering us the ability to download the "Offline Data Download" (full data and images for offline installation) for Pro Plus 8...like you did for Pro Plus 7? This was very helpful me the last time around because i often find myself without any sort of internet connection for months at a time. Also I'm the sort of person that likes to have a backup stored on an external harddrive just in case my computer decides to go wonky and I'm forced to wipe my computer and start fresh.
