Where do you invent this gibberish Bob?  This is what I said,
snagged from an earlier message in this thread:

"Once we implement the new high-res spec-ok'ed method in Xastir I'd
probably still tend to use Base-91 Compressed objects/items due to
the number of people using UI-View32 in our area who wouldn't have
access to the new method."

Tell me where it says we won't implement it.

I don't use hype.  Others on here appear to use it regularly.  I
work very hard to stick with the facts.

There are certainly other things that have been discussed in this
thread than what was originally brought up, but if people don't
bring up their thoughts in this forum, where else can they?
