Re: RE:EDP or REPEATER?
no foul. I think we both made the mistake of answering a question in
absolutes, when it's a bit of a gray area. For my application, the
Repeater behaves fine, you've got obvious and justified beefs in the
way the Repeater loops. Believe me, I was on this list for the year
of "it will be out soon..." and the "Woops, the bug free software we
promised will be out soon..." times. I was a beta tester of OS 1.1
I respect Electrix's decision of making me a beta tester even though
my company's been developing a rival product, The Againinator. When
it's finally done, it will have the glitch free loops you so long
for, and will fetch your newspaper each morning.
