I agree. AltME is good for live relatively intimate discussions, when one is keeping up daily, and swimming energetically in the stream. But its structure, archive interface, import/export, formatting, linking and any modern re-usable google access leave much to be desired. If it were openSource then it would be much easier for REbolers to contribute to its developement. Kind of ironic since AltME is 'free', and that precisely this sort of fast extensibility is one of the jopbs Rebol is supposed to be good at. - Jason
