What is actually running right now?

Hey Shoblock, Just saw your comment now, like four months after you posted it. Want to know how much I like Willy? Check I was at B.B. King's that night in March. You were there too?
Peace, Leslie

Hi shoblock,as I've written before, you can expect from me a version of Panthera we're working on.
I think in a month it will be available only for you, for your opinion. BTW. you have very nice scripts here...

Wow! That's good quality for a camera. Did you tape any Willy, or punk rock shows back in the day? I don't think MSN can handle the files. I enjoyed the videos thats for sure! Maybe my account can handle them? DSL.
Thanks for the flashback!

Hello. I was wondering if you could e-mail me at I was at the Willy show in NYC also. Did you capture the whole show on DVD? I was wondering what you used to video tape the show? Looks good! Also if you are a trader?

Thanks shoblock for your comment at my page. I think
that in a month or two I'll be able to compose the first "very alpha" testing version and if you'd like, I could send it to you...not for testing, just for your general opinion. Do you think it will be possible? thanks
