Im not donating your time. I said convince. I didnt say force. We've all
outlayed money for the hobbies we choose to do. I've spent as much on my
own stuff as well...but I dont go off half cocked when people throw out
ideas for improvements about the software I've developed.  If you don't
want to you don't want to. Nothing I can do about that since you're the
project owner.

When you start accepting help on development you let me know. I'll do the
work for free and handle the emails from stupid users. I have no problem
saying "no" to people. I do it all day.

I wont hold my breath.
