Clear, lucid and apropos. Dynamic, informative, compelling.

Hi Marcel,

Great show (as always)

I see you are feeling a little better, in your last broadcast you did not appear as "chirpy" as usual so I assume you were really suffering with the cold!

Full kudos to you for battling with cold and still giving us a show!

I also look forward to you doing an article on MS's Oslo (if indeed you are planning to) and I expect to see your press hats getting more festive as we approach Xmas!!!!

Kind regards
Goblin.

Re: SugarCRM

That was one of the stories I was considering for this newscast, but never got around to. Unfortunately, I left the link in place (and will continue to do so in case somebody is curious as to what else I was looking into). Thanks for the sharp eyes.

SugarCRM

You did not talk about SugarCRM - but the link was there on the link list - is that intentional?
