A personal request

Friday, September 04, 2009 by Dave Winer.

First, it's wonderful that so many people are trying out River2. I really mean that. Thanks for giving it a try. Permalink to this paragraph

But please post your questions on the Howto page so it's possible other people could help with the answer. Thanks. Permalink to this paragraph

I'm just one person, and ideally I should be able to spend my time fixing bugs, writing docs, and building new stuff. If I have to support every user personally, well that just doesn't scale. :-) Permalink to this paragraph

Let's have fun! Permalink to this paragraph
