Thank you for the update. We have received your log file and will review it. 

What happens when my Pro Combo expires? (#75)
Thank you for the screenshot - I have documented it. TheBrain 9 Web client is still in development, but eventually users will be able to manage their account via TheBrain 9 Web client. In the meantime you will have to go to:  https://webbrain.com/login to check your license status.

Trying out TheBrain9: how to move a thought to a different parent
Thanks for your feedback. We may not create a Brain 9 manual, for a few reasons...

- The design philosophy from the beginning has been "If it needs a manual, it's wrong" 
- The software evolves too quickly for us to keep it up to date easily
- Most people don't read manuals anymore (right?)

However, we've tried to include all of the "less discoverable" features in the list of tips that are included with the application. Also, the new round of tutorial videos that are in the quick-start brain (Help > Create a Quick-Start Brain) is going to be fairly comprehensive when it is complete.

In the meantime, you may want to refer to our version 8 tutorial on "Changing Thought Relationships: http://old.thebrain.com/support/tutorials/changing-relationships/relationships/.

How secure is WebBrain?
Hi Lily,

TheBrain 8 Cloud Security:
TheBrain Cloud services uses the same encryption technologies used by governments, banks and the military to keep your data from prying eyes. During synchronization, your data is transferred using SSL encryption so it is not vulnerable to interception. For data storage, RSA encryption is used on all attachments, icons and images.  This server is hosted by Amazon web services.

For more information, see http://aws.amazon.com/security/

TheBrain 9 Cloud Security:

TheBrain 9 uses a completely different architecture from TheBrain 8 and we are enhancing security as part of that transition.

TheBrain 9 servers are hosted via Microsoft Azure and not AWS.

At present, there is no facility for accessing information even by administrators without the login information. Additionally, our services agreement does not permit us to access user data for any purpose beyond providing services to the user.

- Passwords are salted and hashed using a unique-per-user salt.

- File attachments and notes are now encrypted using a 256-bit AES cipher (one of the strongest block ciphers available).

- We will put together a technical overview of security features of TheBrain 9 as we get further along or soon after the release. 

Best regards,
TheBrain Technologies

Should I now update?
Hi Koen,

Even though v9 is still in beta, the v9 database is more stable and reliable than v8 ever was. Therefore, we put the best option on the main down download page. However, version 8 is still available and you can download it here: http://www.thebrain.com/products/thebrain/oldversions.

Speed of the application is one of the many features we've been excited to improve upon. If you are still experiencing any slowness, please send us an email to support@thebrain. We are happy to schedule a web meeting to take a look at your machine.

Best regards,

Thank you for your feedback. We will document it as a feature request.

Hi Phil,

Thanks you for the update. 

Why there is no monthly subscription to the Brain Service?
Thanks everyone again for your feedback. We are looking into the monthly payment option.

Best regards,
TheBrain Technologies
Why there is no monthly subscription to the Brain Service?
Hi Everyone,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. We feel for the amount of functionality you get, and given the caliber of our software complete with proprietary database and patented visualization, that our prices are very competitive.

Included in all our pricing is complimentary technical and product support with in-house staff members. 

It is correct that currently all our pricing is based annually. However, I will pass the request for monthly payment options on to our sales team.

Best regards,
TheBrain Technologies

Why I want an API (was: A tool I would like)
Hi Rene,

Thank you for your positive feedback. We do have plans for an API. However, it may not be included in the first version 9 release, but it is on the roadmap. We currently are still focusing on a solid v9 release, then focus on more advanced features such as the API, but unfortunately, we are unable to give a timeline.

Best regards,
