Yes I did. I was wondering if there was something more I could find to
help me with the coding aspects of circle.

I simply asked if anyone knew when it might be out. A simple
"we dont know" or not responding at all would suffice. I'm not
asking jeremy to hurry or do any such thing. And since this type
of question seems to baffle you, you've never heard of release dates
and some such? Or atleast expected times when things come out? Yes, I'm
sure you have. And, as a matter of fact, someone replied to me who had
written one section that is to be included in coding.doc. Thats what I
was looking for, not silly flames by people like yourself.

If your having a bad day, don't take it out on me next time, OK?
