So, likewise for opinions about Xastir then? ;-)
Yea, I've run it before, just to see what it does. I used to
recommend it to people, back when Roger was around. I used to have
somewhat regular dialogs with Roger in terms of fixing this or that
in Xastir or UI-View32.
Since I don't tend to run Windows much (by design), I tend not to
run UI-View much. I also have a license for APRS+SA and for
OziExplorer. Those don't get used much these days either.

I just don't know exactly what. This discussion is tiring though,
and going nowhere.
At least my hangups about various operating systems are out in the
open. I think every .sig for several years has had it plainly in

On this forum. Perhaps we should have a show of hands of how many
APRSSIG subscribers are tired of seeing all the Xastir stuff drug
through the mud here. I'd think a rather large majority. It's the
wrong forum for Xastir technical issues. Just as UI-View tech
issues should be discussed elsewhere.

I don't see anything I've said as an attack. Perhaps you should
re-read. You keep trying to get my goat. Bored this week are you?

Bring it to the Xastir list. Haven't I said that already? This is
all entirely off-topic. Stan, are you listening?
