Thanks for all of your feedback, that helps me understand a lot
better.  I'm still used to the 'old' way of doing things (its been a
while since I've been able to actively contribute) where we create a
bug for it even if it isnt a bug, and then close ones we dont need
anymore..  I'll make sure to check on the list in the future and my
apologies for the spam to both this list and to the bug list for all
of the "work" I was doing.



Check out this new 3D Instant Messenger called IMVU.  It's the best I
have seen yet!
