Yo! Andre Garzia!

I am tha "someone" - I don't know why people can't
call a spade a spade - or for that matter call people
by their real names - I am quite prepared to stand up
and be counted for my comments; daft or not.

1. I was not comparing RRMedia with DreamCard: I was
stating that I like DC 2.6.1 a lot and that I don't
RRMedia at all.

2. My comment about the change of stack format:

    It should have still been possible had RR wanted
to, to make stacks made under the new format openable
by previous recensions of RR - after all, it is
possible to save into the old format with Studio and
Co.

The reason, as I see it, for the new stack format, was
a way to push users into upgrading - this is not a new
phenomenon.

Now - while Bill Marriott's message may be interpreted
as a "flamefest" (and I would choose to interpret it
another way) - mine was not a flamefest - I do believe
it would behoove RR to slow down the pace of
development - and demonstrate a more responsive
attitude towards its dedicated user community (which,
oddly enough, I count myself a member). I think that
most users of the RR Use-List will have to admit
(probably with their teeth gritted) that while I am
often a pain in the ***, I have demonstarted some sort
of continuity and support towards other RR users.

I do wonder why every criticism of things "RR" is
taken as negative by some people - when a little bit
of thought would show that it is often offerd as
constructive criticism based on many years of
experience.

I, for reasons I cannot quite work out, feel that RR
is by far the best RAD on the market today - and my
messages are offered as suggestions and positive
criticisms . . .

and, just maybe,

Bill Marriott's are offered in the same spirit!

Love, Richmond
