This may sound rude, Richard, but please don't bug Kevin directly about this sort of thing. He is the _manager_ of the company, and even if he likes scripting himself (which he does), his job is to run the business and ensure its commercial success. He receives loads of emails every day, and it may take him quite a while to respond - and the man does deserve a vacation every once in a while ;-)

There are procedures in place for when you encounter issues: email support at runrev.com for any problems you encounter, and they will be routed to the correct person, depending on the content of the email.
And please file any bug using the Quality Control Center. That's where the software engineers will look.
