??? for Stephen Lebans about A2KSHTML and IE7

P: n/a
Hello Stephen and all,

This is such a cool group. I really need to spend more time here.

A few months ago I noticed some brief discussion here about the fact
that your excellent HTML Editor for Access is not yet compatible with
IE7. At that time, you correctly pointed out that IE7 was still in
beta status and that you would not consider any update to A2KSHTML
until after IE7 was officially released. Obviously, that was the only
sensible response to the issue at the time.

Now that IE7 HAS been released to the public, I wonder if you've
thought about what it will take to make your HTML editor operate
correctly on a computer that has IE7 installed.

My group has an Access 2003 application that is widely used in North
America. It has included your HTML Editor for a long time and it has
always worked fine with IE6. However, as soon as the user
"upgrades" to IE 7 and then tries to load your HTML Editor in the
Access 2003 app, the entire application just shuts down!

Unfortunately, we have now developed a bad case of "Lebans dependency"
:-)' Would you please take mercy on us little mortals and let us
know if and when you plan to make A2KSHTML compatible with IE7?

Thanks again for all you awesome contributions.

Hi Tom. I'm not sure what you mean by the above statement. Would you
be kind enough to elaborate?

Stephen has generously made this and lots of other code available for

all, who would want a widely used app to come to a screetching halt?
Certainly not that good soul from Moncton, Canada.
So I came up with the suggestion to add Stephen to your Christmas list
as an incentive to work on the upgrade. Of course you could hire him
out-right as well.

Of course. If compensation will help get it fixed then I need to
speak directly with SL. Frankly, I don't understand why he posts code
at all without SOME kind of value in return.

In reality, it's not quite the crisis it may have seemed from my
original post. I only mentioned it because he did say or at least
suggest that he WOULD consider modifying it once IE7 was out.
If we must, we'll find another source. But I'd rather get it from SL,
paid for or otherwise. Since he says not to contact him any other way
but this news group, here I am.

Merry Christmas!

Stephen is "otherwise occupied" for a few days and has been without regular
newsgroup access. I'm sure he'll be back online before too awfully long.

"Another"? It's Lauren Wilson again. She's doing a better job of covering
her tracks, but old habits die hard and she still exhibits the same habits,
so you can easily tell it's her.

Hi, Tim.

And in case there's any doubt, Lauren Wilson, while posing as WCase, was the
originator of the _first_ question to Stephen Lebans for upgrading his HTML
editor for IE 7:

http://groups.google.com/group/micro...0924d8c4143e0b

She didn't "[notice] some brief discussion here . . . " a few months ago.
She initiated it herself.

"Demanding" !!!!!!!???? You insufferable elitist snob! I have NO
idea what the hell you are talking about. I dare you to tell me what
words I used that implied I was "demanding" ANYTHING!

"Tiresome?" If this process is so "tiresome" what the hell do you
find invigorating?

Whether Stephen Lebans answers me or not is ultimately irrelevant. I
already have better solution to the problem anyway -- thanks to
coworkers and others who are clearly more civilized than you.

Ah, I knew the style sounded familiar. Yes, this was the person who
last year sometime vehemently moaned and groaned about how not sharing
anything with other people unless large sums of money were involved was
going to make the world a better place... and the idiot has benefitted
from the very same practice she said was something only stupid people did.

Lauren/Linda/Anna follow your own advice and hire Stephen. Don't be
such a hypocritical arsepick.

Welcome back, Lauren Wilson.
"Demanding" !!!!!!!????
Maybe not demanding, but you've jumped the gun twice on this issue. You
first asked if Stephen Lebans's free tool would support a beta product four
months ago, and when he answered he doesn't usually address new versions
until after the first service pack is released, you jumped the gun again by
asking if he'll upgrade his free tool to support the new version before the
first service pack has been made available.
I
already have better solution to the problem anyway -- thanks to
coworkers and others who are clearly more civilized than you.
You always say that. Your co-workers and "others more civilized" than us
give you what you ask for when you can't get it from this newsgroup. It
seems to me that if they were as talented as Stephen Lebans (which I think
we can all agree is very, very doubtful), you would have been using their
tool all along, not _his_, so you wouldn't have asked him twice to upgrade
his tool for your application that's "widely used in North America" --
implying that it's a very important application for your organization and
worthy of your talented co-workers skills.
If you want to email me, use my fiance's public address because I

Congratulations on your impending marriage, but why would we bother him?
Can't we call you at your phone number on your Contactus.php Web page? We'd
like to introduce ourselves to someone who obviously thinks so highly of
this "cool group" as you say. How better to "spend more time" with us than
by talking to us? :-)

But if you'd rather stay with written correspondence, you're always welcome
to join us in the newsgroups. Please check your political campaign hat at
the door when you come in to join technical discussions so that we can try
to remain on topic.
