Jeff, this was a private matter between you and me, but since you've
now made it public, I will state the case here, because you seem to
have misunderstood it again.
You were dropped from the group because you were refusing to honor an
agreement regarding a transaction made via the TIG. You eventually
honored the agreement, so were reinstated. Pure and simple.

ahhh..... just a second here pardner. I rotated the logos because I
saw it as 1) a fun programming exercise and 2) a better way to do
things. Your complaint about my having done that is misconstrued and
strange. You characterize me as 'so worried'... I don't think you
know me very well.

The group is always a bit slow after the shows. Happened in 1995 and
1996. I'm not sure why, but it might be because a lot of us have
networked at the show, so don't see much utility in email, for a

I've asked Rich Torpey to post reports of the discussion on NAB by Mark
Shubin in NYC.

huh? Chicken Little comes to mind.

I guess you can...
If nothing else, your post will bring a withering response from me, in
defense of something many people find extremely useful. The
advertising rules were developed over time and with a lot of input
from all the subscribers; if you'd like to change them then I'd post
constructive, helpful suggestions, and leave out the attacks on me.
