A Big Thank You

The U.S. Gulf Coast was hit hard by hurricanes this summer, devastating the states of Missippi and Louisiana. Here at REALbasic Developer we wanted to help so we pledged to donate 10% of sales for the month of September 2005 to hurricane relief efforts, as well as offering to match individual donations made via the RBD website. I'm pleased to report this effort raised nearly $500 for hurricane victims and I want to thank all those who contributed.

Redesigned Success

I heard no complaints about the new design of RBD unveiled last issue, so I will presume that everyone liked it. As I mentioned before, the redesign is an ongoing process, so please let me know if there are more improvements you'd like to see.
