What do that have to do with what I'm saying? I am saying that if it is difficult to follow what is being worked on, then communicating is more important than it would have been if the result is easily shown. I haven't said anything about what Michael should do, besides that it should lead to a beta release.You're free to hire a dev to work on what you want. Giving money to Haiku, Inc. means they are allowed to spend it however they want.
I could work on the password storage stuff, but I spent too much time answering emails on this list and these are not exactly raising my motivation, so today I'll work on something else.
Next time you take your time answering, try to understand the subject first. Patrik
