I was just seeking additional ideas for enhancing C++, short and long term.
I'd like to start reviewing the code and refining the roadmap. But this can
certainly be done in the forum.

Paul, When you get a chance, please send me a direct email (do not post) at
martys1ow at att dot net. I tried sending you something today but it
bounced. Thanks, Marty.
What, exactly, are you trying to send? I have no interest in job
offers, nor in any of the more seamy offers I recall seeing when my
filtering was not as effective as it is now.
If it can't be said publicly, it probably shouldn't be said at all.
Although I wouldn't expect this from an Open Watcom newsgroup, I have
been on newsgroups (back when I used a valid email) where people would
send very nasty emails privately while pretending, in the newsgroup,
to be very polite. It got so bad that I adopted a personal strategy:
anybody doing that shortly found his "private" email being quoted
publicly. Separating public posts and private email is all very well,
but it can be abused.
And of course my email address doesn't work. That's why it ends in
"invalid": because that is what it is.
I had a nasty episode where my email was being used by spammers; I
accrued 10MB of bounces per week in my mail box. When I created
various alternate email addresses (ie, pretended to be a family
instead of an individual), I narrowed it down to Usenet.
I even know what group it was happening in. It most certainly was not
one associated with Watcom or Open Watcom. But, at least at that time,
Agent required me to use the same email with all the newsgroups, so I
had to use an invalid address on all of them. And, anyway, since it
wasn't happening to anyone else, it was most likely an individual
doing this manually, and such a person could be a lurker on any
There are exceptions for some web sites, a listserve, relatives, and
work on wgml. But, generally, I am not a fan of emails where a
"Nature must be explained in
her own terms through
the experience of our senses."
