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

of thought would show that it is often offerd as
constructive criticism based on many years of

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
