Hi-ho we had an excellent time in Chile with javi and pillar as our *very* gracious and accomodating hosts. it was great, but hard to relate still.. pics and quicktime available in the next week or two. as for evolt stuff, i've read all the emails since i left(more or less) and am suprised, dissapointed, happy, and excited about the many things going on here on theforum. some of the things don't warrent a response here, so i'll be keeping public replies to the constructive things, and hopefully answer some questions that have been brought up while i was gone. reverse date sorting will be the name of the game, and if theres anything from the last week that anyone would like me to respond to sooner, feel free to fwd it to me or something. :) .djc.
