To follow-up, the company has now issued an update that addresses the 
errors that I brought to their attention.

Oops, it looks like I replied to the board and not just to Bill.  My
apologies.

Bill,

I am currently using their software, but have found two possible
programmatic errors in their calculations of open structures.  One of their
errors causes a conservative result; however, the other one does not.
I've notified them over two months ago and they have not provided a patch.
Instead, I recently asked for an update and received an email stating, "I'm
sorry we are not moving fast enough for you.  We are working on a complete
overhaul of the software and these things take time."
