Nice to hear someone so enthusiastic - you made my day too, Madson!

And thank you again Steve, for this new upcoming SignMaker 2015 - your ToDo List is still long enough, so we appreciate the many hours you are dedicating to this project -

When all of the ToDo List is done, I am taking the big leap of buying an iPhone for the first time - there will be good reason when we can write SignWriting on the palm of our hand!

Val ;-)
