Hi Anny,

You will need to reset your username and password.  I am sending you a
private message with instructions.

After you initialize your password, you will be able to rename and delete

  Val and Stephen

  thank you for your quick answer!
  I don't know how to use Apache... so I'll keep entering my signs online...
does'nt matter!

  I just have another question about SignPuddle... anyone can add signs to
the swiss french dictionnary but... I'm supposed to be able to correct
things if I see some wrong spellings...
  could you just tell me how to do so ( I just read your previous message to
editors (2nd of october)...... and I know where my problem is: I forgot what
I'm supposed to enter under user... and my password)... stupid I didn't
wrote it down... and <as I haven't used it yet...! I can't remember

  Can you help me Stephen or Valerie!

  Thanks in advance

    Thank you, Stephen, for explaining this.

    Anny, we are not ready to create a program that runs on your desktop
that is easy to setup. There is a way, as Stephen explains, if you know how
to use Apache on the Mac, but I do not know how to do that myself...Perhaps
in 2005! I need to complete some technical work on the IMWA first, before we
want to focus on making a standalone program...

    In the meantime, be sure to use Firefox or Safari as your web browser
when using SignMaker on the web.

    Are there schools or organizations in your area that have a fast
connection to the internet? Maybe they would let you use their computer, to
save you money...

    No other solutions at the moment...If anyone knows of any, please tell

    Val ;-)

      Currently, there is no way to work offline and add to the online Sign
Puddle dictionaries.

      In the near future, two ways could be possible.

      1) Run Sign Puddle on your local PC, then merge your local dictionary
with the online dictionary.  This would require setting up a webserver (like
apache) with PHP on your PC. I would need to upgrade Sign Puddle to be able
to merge dictionaries.  Sign Puddle can already export the dictioanry in
SWML-S.  Importing would be more complicated, but possible.

      2) Wait for Sign Text to be finished.  Sign Text will be able to run
locally on your PC without setting up a webserver.  You will be able to
create several signs in Sign Text, then save the SWML-S.  Later, go online
and upload the SWML-S into Sign Puddle.  This will also require an upgrade
to Sign Puddle to be able to merge dictionaries (or SWML-S).

      The first option requires some technical know-how, but can be started
immediatedly.  Merging dictionaries will be available later.

      The second option is not ready.  I hope to finish Sign Text soon.  You
will be able to create simple documents with Sign Text.  It will feature
lanes and minimal editing.

      in your last message you said Firefox is about the same than Safari
which is the one I use!
      so I guess I'll just have to keep on doing the way I do... but I'd
like to know:

      Is there any possibility to work offline (I'm working on a Mac Os
X)... because it's a lot of money to stay connected all the time!! I've seen
the document about installing the programm for Windows users... _>_ is there
anything like that for Mac users ??

      Thanks for letting me know!

      I would also be interested... I've got relatively slow connection...
so if I could work offline it would be much better! I know if it's possible
to work offline but would like to be sure it's then possible to add the
signs online!

      Try downloading the new Firefox web browser, and use SignMaker on

      Download Firefox

      It will be faster than Internet Explorer, no matter what your
connection speed...
