Hi Mathias!

Thanks for your e-mail inviting me to drop in here.

As you can see I've been here before. But I've been so busy leaving messages over at the Unofficial Ztree page that I've been neglecting yours.

Seems like you have a more active forum here than they do over at the Ztree bugs forum over on the Unofficial Ztree page. Seems like they resent newbies taking up their time asking a lot of questions about how to get started.

It seems like your page is a little more tolerant of ignorant newbies like me.

I finally ran across the Ztree .HLP file and printed it out, and have pretty much figured out how to use Ztree, so I'm going to give it a try and if it works for me I'll fork over the 30 bucks to register.

Thanks again for getting in touch with me. It's good to be back here on your page.
