Perhaps you two are using different meanings for 'amateur': one being 'unpaid', the other 'low-quality'. Of course, in the old days, amateur meant 'noble', 'high-quality', because an amateur was something who did not need to do something for a living. The word 'amateur' had a similar meaning that 'hacker' does among hackers. -- branko collin [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
