[toad] Re: Happy Y2K and new freeware

Yet another load of thanks for your continuous support to all those poor

And to all who missed (part of) the Millenium Celebration due to "working
because of this particular holiday", may I suggest a supplemental

all?... FYI: that's what we're currently working on right here at this time.
The celebration, I mean!
