    Hi Jack,

    Thanks for your support. I've had people comment on the application
    itself, but to me, a lot of the real beauty is in the code. It's good to
    have someone that can appreciate it. The TG code is designed to be as
    modular, and as simple as possible. These qualities are especially
    important for an open-source application, where allowing code to be quickly
    understood, and reused, is the main priority.

    I don't want to weigh the group down with technical emails, so I've started
    a new thread on painting nodes in the TG Development

    Also, you might be interested in this post (which I have yet to answer) by
    This group plans to augment TG with database access + other goodies.
