Why I joined: the NanoNote

I know it isn't coming any time soon. I've been waiting nearly five years,
staying on the mailing list 'just in case.' As things are now, I have moved
on in many ways - when I started out with my NanoNote I was a university
student who was after a geeky project to get absorbed into. I did that, and
eventually my NanoNote died, and the support behind it with it. Now I'm an
honours graduate with a fiancée and prospects of a career as a fantasy
author. Maybe it's time to 'put away childish things.'

As for Anelok - I neither know now particularly care what it is or what
it's for. Maybe I will unsubscribe from the list. Maybe one day, if I ever
have the money behind me, I'll take a more active part in developing the
successor project.
