I didn't even know I was going to do it, How could I let you
know I was going to :-)
... it only took 5 hours while sitting
in economy class.. you couldn't tell, but I sent it
from the passenger lounge at singapore airport.

It's not a lack of co-operation.. it's a lack of communication. I didn't
see an any lists that anyone was doing this yet and thought I'd get
the ball rolling to promote discussion.. I'm dumfounded to discover that you've
done work here already as I thought I'd have heard of it. I'm sad you
take it as an insult. All I want is to start discussion, and I was doing
it as a way of clarifying my thoughts as to what wqas needed.
Jason,. how would I know you have done this? As the person who was leading the
discussion on arch, I assumed that if anyone did it they would mention it
at least and that I would hear about it.. I assumed that
since no-one mentionned anything about it, that they were waiting until
the SMP locking was a litlle more settled before starting.
I've been paying attention in smp, arch and current, and seen no mention of it,
and I sent an email on this 3 months ago that no-one really responded to..
Is there another list I should be on that I don't know about?
And anyhow, It only took about 5 hours on a plane.. I was amazed at how
little work it was and how quick it was.. I was doing it only as a thought
exercise but to my amazement it actually worked !!
If you've already done this, then 'great' but you could have answered
my previous email asking if anyone was doing it yet..
You can hardly say that you didn't know I was interested in it....
(BTW The comments I made on your doc still stand, though I noticed the last I
looked that the doc had'nt changed..)
