!SysMerge script that ought to help updating Select systems (allegedly)

Fireworkz and PipeDream Google Group

There is a Google Group at:

Click here to go to the Colton Google Group

I strongly recommend that suggestions which relate to wish lists, bugs, etc
for both PipeDream and Fireworkz, are posted to that Google Group
for an airing. Stuart, our lead programmer, is the owner of that group
so that 'bugs and wish lists' posted there will receive his attention.
This Google Group puts those who have ideas for PipeDream and Fireworkz
directly in contact with Stuart.

Richard Colton (the owner of the copyrights), Stuart (the lead programmer)
and I (applying the software to a whole load of applications) are determined
that both PipeDream and Fireworkz shall remain widely available
Making them Freeware has been part of our joint plan.

PipeDream is now Open Source and Fireworkz will become Open Source soon.
