JAED, brilliant, talented.....and gracious!
Of course Jacque is the patron saint of xCarding. A measure of how
good she is, is the way we all take her for granted.
PS What do you think of adding an "Addenda" page to the scripting
conference stacks? This could serve for all those minor afterthoughts,
corrections, additions, etc. It could only be edited by the author of
the conference and additions would be chronological. For instance:
Ken had a suggestion after the conference about button menus. He could
submit it to Jeanne. If Jeanne thought this was a good idea she could
add it to the addenda page, crediting Ken and dating the addition.
Anyone reviewing menus could call up this conference and see if
anything had been added since the last visit.
This would help keep the conference material correct and current
longer without rewriting the entire stack.
It would also generate input from people who have something valuable
to contribute but lack the copious knowledge, time, or talent to do the
whole conference themselves.
It would be easier to find comments like Ken's in an addenda
conference stack than searching all of the How to use Revolution
The tutorials would become even more valuable over time.
And when the time came to rewrite one of the tutorials, the addenda
information would be conveniently accessible to the tutorial author.

Thanks <blush>. Jacque really deserves 90% or better of the credit
here - she made it all easy, prepared the templates and project-managed
the whole thing, not to mention hosting the online conf.
