That's unfortunate, as the world is not black and white, especially when
comes to user needs and information management/communication. A lot of
people like tea, and a lot like coffee, but I don't insist that stores
carry or display one or the other. In fact, to satisfy customer wants,
is why there is the "Charger" - chai tea and shots of coffee.
If you're proposing a NEW paradigm, then please explain further what
Well, it's not even a new paradigm...that's an exaggeration. It wouldn't
take a programming genius to develop a system that is email based like the
system you are accustomed to now, but also has a web-based interface that
draws from the same data-base. If a person's needs are met, why would
give a gnat's ass whether another group of user's needs were also met?
like a win-win situation to me, unless folks are just being belligerent
counter-productive about the whole thing. Don't we want to satisfy
user needs? Or is this group just a bunch of ego maniacs who care about
nothing show-n-tell of their own unique needs. This is supposed to be a

Yes, and that is what you shall get...do you not like the idea of having
your way, but someone else being satisfied as well? I can;'t imagine what
you sex life is like ;) just kidding...really...I'm in a frisky mood
of the stress of planning. I am smiling now.

Agreed...and back to my point. If everyone focused on this new system
than bashing one or another, then we might get somewhere.

The actual system, whether it is off the shelf and customizable, or if
someone has the know-how, one built from the ground up. It depends on what
everyone wants...but it's certainly possible.

That's exactly what should compel us to move on...that we are stuck with
diverse opinions. The middle ground....it not obvious? Consider the
needs expressed in this thread thus far....now imagine a system that meets
them. There're your middle ground...it's a Charger.
clearly there's been

I don't know why anyone is defending anything. It's not like the current
list is under threat of alien intrusion. We're just expressing our needs
wants. That sort of healthy dialogue sometimes leads to improved products
and services...sometimes...sometimes it just pisses people off.

Thank you! It has been a lot of work and I can't wait to see it in
Tonight they setup rows of stage lights and, hopefully a system to control
them. I am making a moveable stage curtain, to move from one stage to
another, so that group A can setup in peace while group B is playing, etc.
We're getting down to the wire now....
