thanks mandaris. i didn't take it that way.
i have pretty thick skin. even lou quillio's
snide comment about "auto-complete cruft"
made me laugh. birds take ourselves lightly.

i appreciate your take. i've been on this list
years now, but that might not be the point...

if you -- or edwin -- don't want to download,
i'm fine with that.

> The email started off with the title

> "fried fish, available, for free"

that was a little joke based on a prior thread,
where i said i didn't really need to get involved,
because i had "my own fish to fry" -- meaning
this very program which i was working to finish.

but if you missed that post, then you wouldn't
have known the inside joke. sorry about that...

a jaguar is a wild feline, not a fish.

> Seemed a little... fishy.

i took your line about "fishing" as a comment
on that, since that's usually spelled "phishing".

but again, i have a sense of humor about myself.

you betcha, mandaris. :+)

sure it does. it's just that the page has
5 screenshots on it, so it's slow to load,
since dreamhost ain't known for speed.

> I'm scared of downloads from unknown sources.

guess you'll just have to live without it then... ;+)

seriously, at some point down the line,
i'll put a copy up for sale in the mac store,
for people willing to pay for ensured safety.

wikipedia is alright, but if you really want to
know about bowerbirds, you should definitely
visit the national geographic site instead, ok?
