if RunRev had to take care of every snitchy translation out there,
the program would be about 9 TeraBytes zipped download... Be happy...

the Power of a programmer... who published that again?

Just a pointer to getting your app out before the punlisher
comes out with a perfect solution for everyone...

hope that's not too zen... ;)
