Hi Mark, I am sure the problem is that you are using RT's list to promote your own/others cause which ultimately may lead to loss of revenue for RT. ( On the other hand it may lead to increased revenues - but who is to know? ) I'm in favour of Open Source, but not if it leads to reduced development by RT. They've got enough competitors with NQL ( see Jan Dr Dobbs ) and others coming. Some companies have as part of their licensing agreements the condition that the user does not reverse engineer their products. I haven't read RT's license for sometime, but would be suprised to find it missing. -- Graham Chiu
