[Samba] RESPOND-EFAX/Payong Gig

The only thing I said I couldn't (more like would not/didn't have time 
to) do was make the frontend (Respond) display PostScript.

A quote from your E-mail:

"The front end should produce a postscript cover page."

I explained that with Respond/printfax.pl, the backend produces the 
PostScript, but that my Respond replacement could provide a preview of 
the fax.

You did not dispute that, and we continued to correspond for a while, so 
I assumed we were still go on the project.

I basically think that you never had a handle on what software you were 
using or how to express what you wanted.  And you apparently had a poor 
understanding of what I was trying to tell you.

That's the charitable interpretation, anyway.

But why you dropped the whole issue as I continued to try to get the 
information I needed to continue, I'm not sure.

None of this is a capital crime.  But I did find you very difficult to 
(try to) work with, and I think my warning was proper.

Anyway, this list is not the place to continue to discuss this.  Not 
that I want to, or have any desire to continue to (try to) work with you...
