Yes, but the use of text/ASCII format exclude the posibility of include text
in bold
or underlined. These options help a lot of when you are consulting certain
parts of my work. And, anybody is excluding to anyother! the .WRI format is
near to plain text. If you open the file with any wp, you must only cut some
lines at the beginning and some other at the end to have (more or less) the
original file (but without the bold and underlined text, that appears normal).
And I repeat, I have and AMIGA, other people have Mac's, other who-knows-what,
and I can not release one file
for everyone of your prefered sistems or programs. I have spent part of my
time in producing some in a way THE MAYORITY can use easily.

Are you sure? Is this the wrong way? I really don't know about what are you
Are you saying all of us must to wait to somebody upgrade its modem or learn
to open
a .wri file? Because, I'm really talking about other thing. I'm not talking
about aged computers o rare systems as Windows3.1. I'm talking about comfort.
It is very nice to be sited in front the computer waiting for the stuff other
produce without move one finger...and if I MUST TO WORK a little these must be
the wrong way! All must be in the way I like it!.
Think about that. Wich would be your own procedure? You don't know nothing at
all about computer/Windows/write-files. You receive with effort a file you
don't know how to use. And you are interested in the content. Will you fire
the "guilty"? or Will you send him a polite message asking for help? I bet
these hundreds of dxers from the third world would does the second.

Excuse me if my english is not very good.

And, for all of you who had been writing to my mailbox or to the list (30 more
or less), don't worry I will put the list in HC-DX eachtime I have some
significant change. Thank's to all of you.

Happy new year!
