I applied and heard nothing.

I applied and heard nothing.  As a single-man company, I cannot spare 
funds, I'm afraid.

I don't do "C".  I have already wriiten an NTP monitoring program, and 
shown how MRTG can be used to monitor NTP on a routine basis.  I spent 
some time trying to get NTP to compile on my system, using both the 
Microsoft tools and some free compilers, but I could never get it to 
sompile and link.

I submitted a number of bug reports.

It may not be intended this way, but you are hitting on the wrong person 
here.  I have tried to do a lot to get NTP accepted within the Windows 
community and worked with those who develop the software.
