Yes, and that's the problem unless they've changed the product.  Once 
a disk "expires" your have 30-odd days to use it until the software 
self-destructs.  So once you get a subscription you're pretty much 
tied to it.  

It would be nice if they would sell you the manual on CDROM once, then 
let you get updates either through a subscription or as you wanted to. 
 I understand that the idea is to have the latest protocols and 
information available (and make a lot of money), but some stuff and a 
lot of basic reference stuff hasn't changed (or changed very little) 
in quite a while.
