I would also like to add my *full* support to those who make their own work
freely available.

If I say that some material is not quite up to the standard I would work
to, I'm also quite well aware that much of my work would not be as good as
other peoples.

I try to feed back constructive bug reports on the applications I use. If at
all possible including a step-by-step account of how to trigger it. If it
doesn't get fixed quickly, I don't go into a hissy fit. I recognise that the
original dev. likely has other priorities.

Finally, were it not for the efforts of some very talented programmers I would
not be on this list at all - I wouldn't have the ability to produce the
music that I do. Nor would i have an OS that I can get on with.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
