[zzdev] Me :)

Hi.  Very sorry to have missed this email,
 if you're still interested.

Somebody said he had a patch to run ZZ under Windows,
 but nobody's had time to pursue it.

I could find it if you want-- plz write back if you're
 still interested.

Best, TN

Quotation of the Day, 99.03.17:
"I believe that if you have something in mind in the way of creation, you
are certain to come up with inaccurate and damaging criticism if you go
around asking for opinions. It is the easiest thing in the world to become
discouraged by a well-meant suggestion which may throw you off your
original train of thought."-- Fred Astaire
