I called up the site's owner in the country that he was in. We had a nice conversation. Afterwards he read my email in which i proposed an update.
Not only was he willing to consider an update but he was very willing to pay for it in full.
I never would have made such a proposal without the advice of Gizmo, Ruben, Allen, Rick, Jaisp and the rest of you on here. (forgive me because i'm forgetting names)
(i'm sure that you'll see more of me. i might have another question or two.
EDIT: maybe another question or two, or three, or thirty three, thirty four, etc.....
