Snippet #929

One of the downsides of the move to the Mac App Store: some applications that I purchased in the past (like Net Monitor) are only available on the Mac App Store now, and there’s no way to side-grade your license; you have to purchase again. Good thing it’s only 10 bucks nowadays. This is a double shame in the case of Net Monitor because it intentionally bars itself from running on each major operating system release (like Mountain Lion, for example), requiring an "upgrade", and the somewhat ghetto non-App Store site only hosts old versions.
