My last word to this thread: I believe Cyphre just wanted to make it clear but I do not understand why he thought it's great idea to discuss that on this list (where no one said a word against him), especially when he's got great oportunity to talk to me directly. If it's just misunderstanding between me and him it's got no place on this list.

Well, organizing... I thought it's just sending some mails and then one reb page... I really didn't know WHAT kind of mails I must send :) And all the rights are still yours (*). No entry form. But - it's not hard to read REBOL code. So if SOMEONE ELSE (*) will use your ideas... (but that's one of the reasons - to show people some nice ways to do things easier). Previously released scripts? No, but if you make 'special edition' then yes. :-) Easy? (*)-- Time to tell the truth: M$ is terribly out of ideas so they want to steal some from the greatest source on Earth :-) No, I'm joking :-) (No, I'm not joking - M$ is REALLY terribly out of ideas and this list is REALLY greatest source on Earth :-) And - no sponsors (yet). But I may buy a bottle of some good Moravian wine for you :)
