Might need to apologize?

I made a comment in yesterdays post about the key chain program. I remarked about some people caring less about the program. This was not intended as a shot at anyone. I was just worried that all the geek talk would turn some readers off. I was actually trying to poke fun at myself.

I got a very heated email tonight from a reader who thought I was making fun of my readers. If anyone else too offense to the comment please excuse my poor writing skills. No offense was intended. Sometimes I think I'm being witty and my words trip over my lips.

Friends Who Care

This cute pattern came from Bob Calhoun. I think he was reading my mind. I was sitting here up to my nose in email not having time to make a pattern tonight. Then Bob's email pops up with a great little pattern with a wonderful message. The pattern is 8" x 10".

Thanks Bob, I am always reminded that I have friends who care by reading all the great email I get.

The Oval Key Chain program that many of you are helping me with is going okay. I am going to take a break from working on it for a couple days to get my head clear and see I can make more headway on the issues it has. Both versions are still available in the last couple of posts. If one works better than the other and you still want to play with it that's good. If it is not working for you I hope to iron that out asap.

I love writing these little programs but it's a good thing I don't have to try to make a living at it. It's amazing how many little things you have to watch for even with a simple little program like this. It's no wonder Microsoft has hundreds of programmers on staff. Be patient with me and I'll try to get it working well shortly.
