*peace* Ken.  It was just a change Steven and I weren't expecting.  The
ID's have traditionally been the initials of your names.  Prob because
it's easier to get NKB right for people than spell it in full! :)

It was.  Everything you do in life, including me sending this
email is a decision.  Nothing against that - you have too to live,
but you can't deny it.

OK.  Thanks for letting us know this.

It was only a recommendation - it hasn't been implemented.  Also,
GUMP/Alexandria lives in Jakarta, Forrest has come out of XML/Cocoon, and
I'd much sooner follow their conventions.

<shrug/> what you do as lead developer for Centipede is completely
under your control.  I thought this project was supposed to be a

No, no, no. 99.999% of everything you've ever done has been excellent.
*PLEASE* don't get annoyed over something so trivial!  However, it
shouldn't be a case of imposing something on the project (perhaps that

it *IS* appreciated.  You weren't getting 'turned down', but,
in all probability most people here arn't subscribed to Alexandria,
and even if they are (like me) they may have completely missed that
thread.  (Typically, I don't read a thread to the end if I've lost
interest part way through...)
