hi. This is the only really sucky thing about e-mail. Things between people are resolved, but because people don't check their mail in so many hours or even days or weeks, there are still hurt feelings. and the worst part of all is that we have all allowed this guy to get the best of us. I don't think that if JAWS crashes that it necessarily requires a reboot. Remember folks, like anything else, JAWS is a program designed for Windows. I mean, programs crash every day, and you don't find yourself rebooting simply because another program crashes, notunless it causes a lot of problems. Perhaps you guys still using eloquence may like to set yourselves up some hot keys so you can restart in a hurry.
This way you won't have to reboot every time.
I do hope that FS and ETI eloquent technologies can come up with fixes for this. In a way maybe all this is a good thing, because it fixes bugs.
I'm very sympathetic to people whose machines have been compromised and if your JAWS crashes , it really sucks. I'm sorry about that. But, you *can* fight back.

Pam, Chris and others...
I appreciate the problems we are all going through. Pam, it's bad, but no point harping on about it. I appologize if I've said anything out of place here, but... I think we should contact fs and ETI, and leave it be. Once again, my greatest appologies if I've said something I shouldn't've said. This is a hard time for all of us. Joseli... no offense, but Pam's right. You don't have to say that. I mean, It's just not worth it. Chris, isn't slandering or anything, and he could've said a lot as well. Chris, I hope you won't mind me using you as an example, I'm just too mad to think about anything else right now. And again, it's not worth spazzing out over.

Yes, and now you've lowered yourself too. For one thing, the message wasn't meant for the list, and for another, I appologized. And for still another thing, Chris would be the one who has a right to talk about the immaturity involved, yet he chose to be a much bigger person about it. I know he realizes that I don't think he's an idiot, that we've all been under a lot of pressure this weekend. No excuse, but he was very nice about it and I appreciate that.

I've seen several instances where people have appologized on this
list, and others who weren't even involved in the first place keep
attacking. So if you'll take your own advice, maybe there's hope for

As for me, whether it was meant for the list or not, I regretted it
the moment I fired it off. And other than appologizing for it, there's
really nothing I can do about it. Chris, once again, I'm sorry.

I find that you are just as bad as the person that started this problem by
calling others "idiots"
You should be just as ashamed of yourself as the perpetrator of this whole
mess because you attacked another list member.
I find your behavior immature and disgusting.

Yes, and whether I like it or not, I'm using another alternative. But the fact remains that the offending word needs to be stopped. If we lose a lot of list members over this because of the moron who started it, that's one thing. But those of you who have switched to other alternatives ought to know better than to reply to messages with subjects that will crash the computers of those who haven't. Let's not get to a point now where we're saying that if they haven't switched, that's their problem. I already know of a person who unsubscribed from this list and was a valuable contributor.

Hi Pam
But that's just it, you, and everybody else here, I'm willing to bet,
*does* have an alternative to eloquence. If you use Windows XP, you
have at least one Microsoft Sapi speech voice installed by default,
and more can always be downloaded for free. and if you're willing to
spend a bit of cash, you can buy Sapi voices from several different
websites.  So while the messages *are* extremely annoying, there are
alternatives, if you're willing to look for them.

Hellooo? Please don't reply to the message with the offending words in
it. The subject itself is crashing computers of people having no other
alternatives other than Eloquence.
