Subject Re: [IBDI] Names of our lists/newsgroups

Hi all,

I'm not a very active member as a FB developer, but more as a tester and
forwarding stuff (errors), mailing ideas and brainstorming about things....
But, I do have a couple of things to say...

First, I use both InterBase and Firebird. Not only because of InterBase
Workbench (which should be renamed perhaps?), but because:

1) my part-time day-time job -> IB (because it's 'backed up' by a company)
2) my part-time InterBase Workbench job -> IB & FB (because it earns me
3) my part-time other job stuff -> FB (because it's free, bugfixed and
there's no need for licenses of course :)
4) personal interest -- I like IB, it's small and easy to use. This, of
course, is also true for FB and I want to keep in touch with it!

When it comes to mailinglists and FB/IB support, I have but one thing to

Please, not _another_ mailinglist to check!!

I'm already a pretty busy man (not as busy as Claudio, who seems to be
posting stuff 24hrs/day :) -- and to get support for FB I have to
subscribe/check another mailinglist is a little bit too much. And I cannot
answer questions to other peoples posts on yet another list - I simply do
not have the time to keep up with that...

Hope this helps,
