Thanks again, Troy. The interview went well. I think we'll see a pretty
good article.

What you did is extremely valuable for building our support base. Some of
the readers of the article will go to our web site and become supporters.

For the benefit of others, can you describe in some detail how you did it?
I have found that you can often just pick up the phone and talk to the
reporter directly. They often won't return a phone call but if they happen
to be available they're usually willing to talk.

I made a point to tell the reporter what a great job you did for us making
Jan's Reading Impaired Interface work on a Mac. That's the way we demoed
it, in fact -- on Arthur's Mac.

If other people on the voting project list would take this initiative
(calling reporters), it would help a great deal.
