SOme thoughts while I'm here...

I just wanted to drop a line and thank those of you who have found this site and panel suite useful.
Although the initial activity has dropped off in the panel suite and the forum.. I will continue to operate this site. Site upkeep  is a no-brainer (it runs itself) and as long as the 168RC is a viable piece of technology (I still love mine!) I will continue.
Plus I'm one of those people who likes to think that you can find 'something' about 'everything' on the net, no matter how obscure!
An interesting note on this whole project.  For a while all is quiet. Nothing happens out here and no email inquiries about the panel suite.  Then all of a sudden I'll get a 3 or 4 requests for the panel suite in the span of a day or two. No reason that I can pinpoint.  Not geographically weighted.. pretty random locations. No 'advertising' from me.  It's like a spark goes off in a few heads simultaneously "Hey.. I wonder if someone ever wrote a studioware panel for the 168! Let me check the net!" It then slacks off back to zero for an extended time then a flurry again. It's all very much like fishing...
How many?:
Well the panel suite has been out for about 5 months now.  In case any of you are interested.. to date I have sent out 92 packages. In the grand scheme of things that's not an overwhelming number. But if you stop and think, it's probably a sizable chunk of the people that own the 168RC and actually tried to use it with Cakewalk!
Prior messages:
Those of you who stop by often may notice that the earlier messages are beginning to scroll off.  The message board holds them for only 60 days then boots them off.  I have archived them and will link them from the main site in a couple of weeks.
Ok signing off.. hope all of you are doing well in your musical/engineering endeavors.
