WOW, you guys need to take a chill pill!!! This is why we can't get faster
beta releases is because of this attitude. It also sounds like IEA has some
nice software they could release but won't just because of this. The minute
they say they have something that might work I see a couple of emails say
sure count us in and by the way can you get it to support this and this and
do this.

I've been using Emerald for over a year, since the early days :-), let me
tell you it is the ONLY software that is doing what it claims to do. I also
understand that when you develop software you must choose certain products
that you can test your integration with (i.e. Post.Office, Soft*Deposit)
and deal with those first. As you get more customers buying your software
you can add additional support for those on a as needed basis. But if you
have a client base of 1,000 and 900 of those are using say Post.Office it
doesn't seem logical to spend resources on integrating say some obscure
software you found at the flea market on sale.

I hope you guys get my point I'm not talking specifics here, just that the
spirit of things around here are getting just a little intense for me.

Thanks for your time
