So glad to hear that you could open SignBank, Ilke - that is great! are right that you will need the October 7 version to get
the German Navigation Language....However, the German doesn't show up
much until you go into the SignBank Editor or in SignBank 8 in the when you download the Oct 7 version, look in the Editor
to see if you have German words there - if you do you know you have
the right version -

Regarding downloading....
Not everyone can download all the time. In fact, some people can't at
all. I know I am very lucky. I have a fast cable modem, called
RoadRunner, and I have very fast downloads and uploads - I wish you
could all experience what I experience.... you would see that
downloading with a fast modem is a dream come true!

That is why I plan to create a CD later, and distribute that CD. Then
the problems with downloading go away. However, we need some signs in
the databases first - so those who can download are really helping us
get going so we can add some signs - Downloading is free too, but the
CDs will cost money and postage...
Val ;-)
