Subject Re: DayTrader with an AJAX based Web interface
Date Thu, 12 Oct 2006 13:57:19 GMT
Hi Chris,

Thanks for the update.

I tried it with Safari (on Mac) and its a little confused :(  I'm  
sure it should be fairly simple to get fixed for that environment too.

I like what your doing and was wondering when you thought you might  
have a patch to start layering this into DayTrader?  Remember, it  
doesn't have to be totally complete and there are others in the  
community that would love to help out.
