[ga-roots] Re: [ga] Date: Wed, 2 May 2001 22:31:09 -0700 - Ken Stubb New.net problem revieled

David and all remaining assembly members,

  David, thank you for chiming in on this.  Much appreciated here, and I
sure by others on this forum as well. I will resend this to the
ga-roots@dnso.org list along with my reply here ASAP.

  I took the time to inform Mr. Stubbs, that his problem he experienced
with New.Nets product was likely a configuration problem with his
own PC configuration.  See:
for further details.   your comments below seem to also indicate
that this is likely the case, and that a new revised version is
on it's way to address some of these potential problems.  Thank
you for doing so.

  As you may know, Ken Stubbs is a member of the DNSO NC, as
such he may be predisposed to be in disagreement with New.Nets
approach.  If so, it is understandable why his remarks in a post
to the DNSO GA and the DNSO-ROOTS ML was so forthcoming.
However I am sure Ken will be more than happy to address such
a possibility.
