Re: SplashData user forums are moving!
- Cameron - I agree with you - but I was called "resistant to change." I
will use the forums when I have a problem, but I won't stay current on

creative uses of their software. Too many forums, as well. And the
SplashID for Palm forum as 3 threads, all about SplashID for Mac.
