SignWriting List
January 22, 2002

Rikki - Thank you for the message below. Of course you are right. If
your masters degree thesis is in research, and the focus has to be
"new", then clearly helping us with an "old" computer program like
SignWriter (that has been in use for 15 years now), is hardly your
project! But thank you very much for offering to help, and if you
choose SignWriting for a new project, we will always be interested.
Val ;-)
