the very moment i think i can articulate my ideas well enough to file
bugreports, i will do it.  please do not hold your breath though ....

i spent many many fruitless hours trying to get an xsl to obey a css
file.  i am to the point where i am going to type the samples in from my
books to prove once and for all that it doesn't work.  meanwhile, i am
continueing with what i thought my job would be. and that is to gather
useful and concise GIMP information, and beg for tutorials and how-tos
from anyone i can ....

the people who are in charge of bugzilla are very very mindful of what
is going on there.  thank you very very much!!  all the more reason to
be mindful of what goes there ....

sorry, i love the old site.  this is the first time i have ever
complained about it.  and i didn't mean to.

when i asked last summer about updating the current site, i was given a
very short list of names of people who could do that.  since no one on
that short list would talk to me, i started gathering things for the new
site.  i realize that things have changed since then, but it is hard to
stop what i was doing.

a few months ago, someone was bored and willing to change some things
around at the current site.  i was not ready at this time.  since then i
have gathered brushes and other resources that are not included with
GIMP already and put them on my site.  i am almost ready with brushes.
give me a chance to go over my collection one more time and imo the
whole lot of brushes that are there can be replaced with my collection.

perhaps when bex comes back, she can file a few bug reports for me ....
