Re: VMs: Split -ol- pairs...?
I am leaving the list but just had to reply to this one before I go. I am
100% behind Nick on this one. Make sure you pursue this seriously Nick.
There are several people on this list that have the answer between them. If
they all co-operated this could be sorted once and for all. Those people
are, in no particular order: Nick Pelling, Glen Claston, Jon Grove, Robert
Teague, Larry Roux and Jaques Guy. I have looked at all their work and can
see where it all fits together. I won't be participating in this, but if you
guys really want to sort this out you can. You may not know it yet but you
all have pieces of the puzzle. So play nice.
