      If we keep talking to each other, it won't be temporary.

      pedit/ptoolset may largely be history, but this community deserves to
      persist. We found other things to talk about back when...

      Dataviz has versions of DTG for a variety of platforms. I have DTG 8
      on the TX, with the ability to do "native" conversion of MS documents
      (mostly spreadsheets) on the PDA, instead of having to do them on the
      desktop and Hotsync.

      I still have and use a Palm folding keyboard. If I get a table, a BT
      keybpard will join the mix.

      You and lots of other people. There was a bit of a stir recently:
      Dropbox hired Guido von Rossum, the creator of the Python language.
      Guido had been at Google, but Dropbox makes heavy use of python, and
      decided having the guy who wrote it in the first place on staff was a
      good idea.
