I'll look to see what happened there.

I was speaking to an audience that included you, but was not limited to you.

If you work for companies that have a significant "need" for NTP, I'd
appreciate your lobbying them to join.  If the information at the ntpforum
site is not sufficiently compelling I'd appreciate learning how to improve
the content.

Yes, and again, I was speaking to a larger audience.

Harlan> Volunteer to improve the documentation on the support website.

David> I submitted a number of bug reports.

Yes, thanks for that.  And the documentation on the support website can be
improved by anybody who wants to - it is fairly trivial to create an account

David> Harlan,

Appreciated, and again, I was speaking to an audience that included, but was
not limited to, you.
