 Well I'll tell you right now that the money was a very welcome
"gift" from SourceGear. Even better than the money though was
the letter (which I have sitting posted to a wall in my office)
with this sentence:

"This gift is prize money. This money should in now way be
interpreted as wages, tips, consulting fees, or other earned
Just wondering ... did you do the letter up on AbiWord?
