I can hardly wait for V.17 to be released. All the adjustments, new features
and options are tantalizing, to say the least. Hope you are having as much
fun doing all this as this group of users seem to be having, learning and
using Genbox. Hope there will be a new and expanded Help file included with
the new version.
