...Anyway, I have subscribed to the IS discussion forum (as I have done with the Donation Coder forum) in my Google reader, and will follow the forum with interest. However, I remain skeptical. Just as "two swallows do not a summer make", the IS developer's (Jim D.Lewis) recent appearance on the discussion forum after years of apparent neglect could be just a flash in the pan. Like I said above, "I wonder what triggered it?"...
Well, now that you're in the group, why not just ask Jim Lewis what prompted him to come back?
Now is the time to ask anything you want.
He's answering many inquiries. From the latest posts, I assume that this is no picnic for him.
He's getting a lot of criticism, yet he's still asking people to articulate their wants and needs for InfoSelect.
Personally, I don't feel that this is probably just a flash in the pan; he has no history of showing up then leaving.
He didn't start that group, so I can't see penalizing him for not directly participating in it.
He just wasn't involved (or didn't make it known he was involved) with his user community, and now he is.
I'm glad he's there now, on the forum - glad for him, his program and for the IS users.
The forum is for now, amusing at best. Hopefully, that will change. We'll see.
