Re: Boomerang survey - please respond

Hi Mike, I just want to say that Im very grateful that you would take the 
time to survey the members of this list, many of who have been looping for 
well over 20 years, many of who have been designers or beta testers of 
looping products,  and many who have wished that the major manufacturers 
would pay attention to what we have to say, rather than building lowest 
common denominator products  with basic features. Kudos to Boomerang for 
striving to build a better mouse trap, like Andy, Im not a user , but 
everything you are working on makes me want to be one.
