If you have any interest in biorhythms, this is THE program. This program was great in OS 9 and has numerous new useful features which are still in a state of tweak. The developer is very responsive to support questions.

OUTSTANDING, BUT BEWARE OF THE COMPARE RESULTS! The individual charting portion of Biorhythms 9.0.2 is the best available anywhere. It provides the user with a wide variety of options that allow retrieving quite comprehensive results. It is by far the state-of-the-art in charting individual biorhythms. However, the 'compare' portion, which reportedly is designed to calculate precise compatibility percentages between two individuals, reports obvious questionable results. It fails to include 90% ranges in it's shared % and/or ideal compatibility % calculation results. Regardless of the different ages being compared, 90% ranges are conspicuously missing from either portion of the two key % results. In fact, results strangely go from 100% to the 80% ranges whereby, completely skipping the 90% ranges. Anyone somewhat familiar with biorhythm compare results are acutely aware how important the 90% ranges are in determining accurate compatibility. We contacted Hiatus Software by email about the 90% abnormality along with a couple of other questionable things. We related to Hiatus exactly where the abnormalities occurred, what we thought caused them, and what code changes we recommended might remedy the problem. To our amazement, we ran into a completely unexpected stone wall. Rather than acknowledging there may be an unknown problem, Hiatus vehemently defended the program as perfect. Even after thoroughly proving the problems existing were simply a slight code miscalculation, Hiatus refused to even test the recommendation we suggested to fix the program. You can prove that the 90% is missing along with other abnormalities easily yourself. Here's what to do: . Open the compare program and click 'New Comparison'. . The compare window opens with today's date listed for Person A, Person B, and Current Date. . Leave all dates as existing and look at the shared % figures which are all 100%. . Next, subtract one day from Person B only. Now the percentages are in the 80% range. What happened to the 90% range that should be there when only one day is different? . Next, continue subtracting one day at a time from Person B while watching the percentages. All of a sudden duplicate percentages begin showing up around the mid cycle baseline. That is, there is the same percentage reported over 4 different days. That obviously can't be right. We provided Hiatus with the reasons for the abnormalities along with what we felt was a very simple fix. We detailed that the problem was rooted in the base compare calculation code. Here is a simple breakdown how things normally should be calculated: . All individual biorhythm calculations are based on calendar days and therefore, start with the number 1. . All comparison biorhythm calculations are based on the number of days difference between two individuals. Twins born on the same day have a value of 0 (zero) since there are no days difference. Twins born one day apart would have a value of 1 (one) since they are one day apart. Conclusion is that the compare program is required to base it's comparison calculations starting from 0 (zero), not 1 (one) as the current Biorhythms 9.0.2 program does. Should be crystal clear, right? Hiatus stated that the compare day difference example we outlined is completely wrong. Why? Because Hiatus decided to apply the number 1 (one) to people born on the same day. Sound logical to you? Two people born on the same day are actually 1 (one) day apart? How does that happen? Well, it's pretty simple. Hiatus applied the calendar day 1 (one) to both the individual biorhythm charting and compare charting codes. Using 1 (one) for the individual chart program is correct because it's based on calendar days which have no 0 (zero) days. However, the compare program is based on days difference and therefore, must be calculated from a 0 (zero) base to reflect people born on the same day that have no days difference. I'm sure those reading understand the difference Hiatus prefers to ignore as frivolous. Conclusion: Because Hiatus uses day 1 (one) instead of day 0 (zero) in the compare code several things become apparent when visually reviewing the compare results. Using day 1 (one) instead of day 0 (zero) eliminates one day (day 0) from the code. Eliminating that one day 0 (zero) results in the following: 1. 90% is conspicuously missing. 2. 100% to 80% 2-day jump (bypassing 90%). 3. Mid range % duplications. The cause of each of these abnormalities is the elimination of one simple day. Starting with compare day 0 (zero) would add the day back in whereby, completely eliminating the problems excluding it has produced. Adding the 0 (zero) day would put the compare program on par with the extraordinary individual program. The motivation in publishing this review is to acknowledge that the individual biorhythm program is excellent, but that due caution be taken in relying on any compare charting results. According to Hiatus, we are the only entity to find any Biorhythms 9.0.2 Compare Charting errors. We found the errors by pure chance. Once found we reverse engineered the problem to find it's cause and thereby, the fix. To unequivocally prove there is a problem please run the compare program following the above suggestions and find out for yourself. It's blatantly apparent. Once proving it yourself, please email Hiatus Software at: and report your findings. Hopefully, since they don't believe us they may believe others finding the same problems whereby, instituting a positive change. Bottom line is those wishing to rely on any compare program should be provided with accurate results established using known comparison calculation standards. Missing 90% ranges is totally unacceptable. Thank you for taking the time to read our review. The Biorhythm Police

"The Biorhythm Police", alias Robert W. Hagen, is a former business partner and one-time contributor to the program. I take all support enquiries seriously and, though I cannot always devote as much time to the program as I would like, try to take on board legitimate suggestions. It's the only way to build a high-quality and user-friendly piece of software, as the first Biorhythms review (at the bottom of this page) shows. Mr. Hagen has pursued this issue for several years: literally hundreds of emails have changed hands, and reading/writing them has been a huge - and utterly fruitless - drain on my time. For him to suggest that we "ignored" his comments is outrageous. Put simply, Mr. Hagen does not know - and has given the impression that he does not want to know, or is incapable of coming to terms with - how Biorhythms 9 calculates compatibility percentages. This information is available to the entire world on our web site, and in the documentation supplied with the program. He has ceaselessly claimed there is a "bug" with our system when what this amounts to is that he is comparing our results with those of an "alternative" formula. The vast bulk of his review consists of speculation, half-baked theories and guesswork, much of which is demonstrably false. In short, the bug he refers to does not exist, and we wholeheartedly stand by the accuracy of our compatibility formulae. I have suggested to Mr. Hagen that if he wishes to use his "alternative" method of calculating compatibilities, he should commission a new biorhythm program so that there can be fair competition, rather than spread rumours about Biorhythms 9 and give people a negative impression of its quality, or the quality of support we give to all our users. Mr. Hagen strongly gave the impression that if we did not make the changes to our program that he had suggested, he would start posting negative reviews and comments across the Internet, which I regarded as tantamount to blackmail, and shortly after receiving two highly dubious support emails - which I believe to have been the handiwork of Mr. Hagen or his associates - I cut all ties and requested that our ISP step in. Hope that's clarified the situation.

Andrew Regan, creator of Hiatus Software's Biothythms 9.0.2 program (and it's forerunners) continues to be in denial. His persistence in justifying abnormalities in the comparison program lacks critical judgement while demonstrating an egotistical ‘I'm right, you're wrong' attitude. Anyone seriously interested in investigating the errors mentioned in our review can only reach one conclusion - the 90% is missing from each and every biorhythm cycle. Regardless if you are looking at the shared percentages or the compatibility percentages, 90% is conspicuously absent. While it is true that we were business partners in the past there is one thing worth mentioning. Our collaboration strictly centered on biorhythms. Back then, as now, I knew there was a problem with the missing 90% ranges. When we began creating a marketable biorhythm vehicle I insisted that the program be modified to include the 90% ranges. The results of that insistence produced the finest comparison program ever created. Not only were the 90% ranges included in the compatibility percentage readouts, but also in visual charting. That program was perfect. Mr. Regan's insistence in defending Biorhythms 9, sans the 90%, as perfect represents a biorhythm fiction completely inconsistent with what we had collectively created. Unfortunately, Mr. Regan continues to masquerade fact with justification excuses. Regardless of the preponderance of number crunching data evidence he presents to justify his position, one clear fact still remains: "Why are all the 90% ranges missing? And what's the deal with the mid-range percentage duplication?" We have been persistent in our ongoing exchanges with Mr. Regan about this matter. Our interests lie in not relying on his nebulous programming excuses, but to fight for what is right. We simply wish to provide consumers with a reliable full spectrum percentage comparison program. A program that should accurately report all percentages in precise prescribed increments, including his missing 90% ranges, without mid-range percentage duplications. We have provided Mr. Regan with ample warning about publishing our review outlining his program's abnormalities. While he feels that we were trying to blackmail him into making corrections, our position is simply wanting him to reevaluate and logically address the blatant percentage omissions and duplications we never had in our collaborative effort. There are only two factual biorhythm formulas used by learned biorhythm programmers. One is the established formula based on ‘calendar days' used in calculating individual charting. Second is the ‘days difference' formula used for calculating comparing two individuals. Mr. Regan obviously is confused by the two. There is no empirical evidence available anywhere to support his contention that his compare program is justified in eliminating the 90% ranges (as based on his incorrect misleading formula) besides including duplicate mid-range percentages. Mr. Regan is unfortunately taking this matter personally rather than objectively investigating reality. That's unfortunate. Reality dictates correctness and accuracy. We only wish to make the comparison program whole and reliable. Hopefully, readers have fully investigated our contentions and reached the same conclusions we have. There is definitely a problem! There is no logical justification for eliminating 90% ranges and mid-range duplications are unheard of components. Both combined seriously question Biorhythms 9 accuracy and reliability. Final reader consideration: . Do you want to receive a comprehensive full percentage comparison or opt for an artificially concocted comparison missing a critical percentage range and including contrived redundant percentages? . The bottom line is that Biorhythms 9 should provide accuracy driven by fact rather than driven by blind illogical ego complacency. Stay tuned for the next episode when Mr. Regan further stretches plausible deniability credibility. BTW. We have been involved with individual and comparison biorhythms longer than Andrew Regan has been in existence. What could we possibly know?

Hi Jp7, I've recently downloaded Biorhythms 9.0.2 and like you, I think its fabulous. Unfortunately the program is now running partially crippled because I haven't been able to register it. I've searched the web high and low trying to find a place where I can buy it and get a reg. number, but it seems the developer has dissappeared from the planet. If you or anyone else can point me in the right direction on how I can purchase Biorhythms 9.0.2, I would be eternally grateful.
