As a big fan of Chatrev and, I just wanted to do my (little
part) to help.  So I added a very thin substack to Chatrev that shows only
the most recent chat posting. Presenters can place this window at the bottom
of the 'visible' area of their screen. This allows the audience (especially
those watching the recorded version), to see the questions and comments
without it occupying too much of the recordable area of the screen.  If
someone who is presenting next week, or anytime, would like to give it a
try, just let me know. I don't have a website to host this modded version,
so I'll just have to email it to you off-list.

BvG's Chatrev is awesome, and so is  These guys do a wonderful
job sharing the knowledge (and fun) of LiveCode, so this is my way of saying
"thank you" to Mark and BvG and all the presenters!
