True, but I still don't know why your support for SD stopped the way it did.

I like the idea of a discussion system, in fact that is what we are doing
for the last 2 months. At the time I didn't vote on this because I did not
participate that much. A "subscribe" list would probably be very handy.

On of my reasons for disappointment was that some long time ago I offered
you some help by writing some documents and a program. You replied to me
that at that time you had no time and would write back. After waiting a few
weeks I send a similar letter once more. Again you replied the same. But I'm
still waiting for an answer.
My offer still stands...

As far as I know this can be done at any server with form-capabilities, the
thing you need to install is a auto-mailer. (I tried to do it once but got
not very far.)

That message of Dec. 17th was the last and the ONLY letter I received from
you, the only other trace I have found was at Nov. 10th where Kevin told
that you had written him.

As I wrote before I can understand that you are busy, but I can't understand
that you have not 15 minutes to write a letter to people that try to build
something together with you.

What is this attachment? All letters from you seem to include it, but when I
take a look at it, it is garbled completely.
