Good news indeed.

Before I go any further I ought to introduce myself since I am new to 
the list. My name is Jeremiah Foster and I'm a perl hacker and OS X 
softie - perfect for this list eh?  =)

Great to see such candor from a developer, it is commendable. 

I blog and write a bit on O'Reilly's web site, maybe I can work
out a blog posting about CamelBones? Hopefully that would add 
traffic/users/donations which would be a good thing. Let me know
if you are interested sherm. I am afraid I cannot offer financial
support at this time since I am also not gainfully employed in a
permanent fashion, just some writing and such, but if I can help
in other ways I would love to. Perhaps you can post a wish list to 
this mailing list so that those who can hack, provide bandwidth,
etc. can contribute if that is useful to you.

In any case, I am very interested in perl, OS X, and CamelBones and
am willing to use my little soap box to further their vitality.
