Rocky day

It's been one of those days. The Tinderbox wiki is being spammed unceasingly, mostly from China; we're faced with spending thousands to try to block the spam, or shutting it down. I spent six hours this morning fixing a minor port issue in Tinderbox for Windows, a niggling detail that ramified all over the place It was a drag flavor you'll never know about, until it doesn't work. I got a series of dishonest phone calls from idiot telemarketers. The office was shorthanded all day. The Sox lost again.

This makes it all ok:

Their technical support is also excellent - they are simply the most responsive software company I’ve dealt with in nearly thirty years of working with computers and software.
