[REBOL] Re: Altme: how to find groups

From: tim:johnsons-web at: 18-Jun-2003 8:59

IMHO: Daril's comments are right on the mark - both the critical and the positive. I found myself a bit vexed that Carl posted a message to this ML about 'why this list has been so quiet' (sic), but did not give clear instructions as to how to use Altme. At least I didn't see them, and had to post several queries to this list to resolve that matter. I gather from other postings that others may have felt the same way. I hope both this ML and altme will flourish. However, I have 'bragged up' rebol to anyone who will listen and have urged other programmers, including my business partner to use it, and I think many of those would prefer the ML approach. regards tim * Daril Ng <[ishtahara--yahoo--com]> [030618 08:28]:
