  2. some good ideas, needed support for time and work

    That Nick couldn't make a go with consulting to support Sprazz is not an uncommon thing to happen to any developer, nor the lack of outside support of any useful kind, and I think that knocking him...
  3. Looks like my hopes are in the process of being answered.

    It's not that I'm afraid of CLI/terminal, at least not for the ordinary reasons; it's that I have a talent for finding novel ways of upscrewing things, or so it seems. Sure, and I've compiled a few...
