I agree that they have done a good job and I certainly
applauded all involved in this effort.  I don't think I would
have done a better job and I am not criticizing the
work done.  I also have nothing but good to say about
the job that Clif has done and thank him for the many hours,
and I suspect, money he has given to the community.

As far as contributing to this effort, I am not permitted
that freedom by my current employer.  I get little time
away from the job for things like Spectrum, which I really
wanted to attend, or vacation for that matter.  Once
things were different but for now....

I am just one of "those" that doesn't like fora.  I am a
member of U2UG and the GalaTech Multivalue Forum.
I don't do GalaTech much for the same reason as U2UG.
I prefer email communication in the form that Clif provided.

I am not trying to offend anyone or belittle the excellent work
that has been done with U2UG.
