Yes, the hackers seemed o be more interested in it than anyone else. It seems that the Cougar community is a just a little too small to support something like this. You never know until you try...

Bill,

I think speak for a lot of the Cougar community when I say that we really appreciate all the innovative things you are doing and have done. The hard work, can-do attitude and optimism is appreciated!

Regards,

Robert

Thanks guys! I am still having fun doing this stuff. I am always open to ideas if you guys think of something that would be cool to have. Of course I also tend to put too much on the plate so... not everything gets the attention it deserves.

The guy that really deserves all the credit for making CSM work at all is Jay. The sofft ware was buggy from the start and he spent countless hours (actually he did count them, but it is too horrifying to look at) making the thing go. He sent dozens if not hundreds of fixes to the software publisher but seldom got any response. Oh well.

When the hackers really took over we were both sitting at out computers deleting stuff in real time and they were still posting faster than we could delete it. I don't understand parasites that are so aggressive they kill the host.

So looks like CSM is gone Bill, is that correct? Just wanted to bring the thread up to date (is an announcement or something in order in this and similar threads?).
