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.
