An issue that may or may not be important to you is that Kagi has now gotten 
very, very big... big enough that you can consider yourself lucky if you ever 
get anything other than an autoresponse to any inquiry.

A month or two back, a visitor to my www page asked if I knew how to get in 
contact with another shareware author I'd mentioned on the page, since his 
Kagi mail was being bounced back. I never did get a reply from Kagi (how, I 
wondered, can you process payments for someone if you don't have a valid 
e-mail address for them?) and ended up having to hunt him down myself-- in 
Czechoslovakia, of all places. Luckily he had a relatively uncommon name.

It took them two weeks to explain why I'd never gotten an acknowledgement of 
a new-vendor registration (answer: computer crash). But in the mean time I'd 
looked around at other services, found that they charge a good deal more, and 
decided that for my tiny smattering of non-US registrants, it's good enough.
