Hey all devs,

First off, sorry for the three day turnaround. Paid work and one
incredible party just HAD to take priority ;)

Anyway, the DevKit is now on version 3.11 usual, the version history
lives at the bottom of the DevKit readme ...either way, here are individual
replies to the three most important posts that were made here recently.

If there is anything else, please let me know either here or on my private
email, as you prefer.

The new DevKit is now available for download at my homepage:
or more directly...

to give him a certain bold and masculine look, which is found in the
statues and portraits of Hercules . . . And indeed, it was these same
"Herculean" qualities that the fastidious found so offensive - his
swaggering air, his ribald talk, his fondness for carousing in public,
sitting down by his men as they ate, or taking his food standing at the
common mess-table . . . Besides this, his openhanded nature and the
