My only problem was an inability to send to people who weren't also
using Gerry's. I really loved the control strip module and the
ability to have multiple messages open. Miribilis (which it
certainly is not!) seems to have caught up since I stopped using it,
but it is still pretty lame.

>screw miribilis, I say, for being so insular!

I'll say!
Gerry hasn't released any updates since he carbonised it, and I can't
contact him! I really loved that app, but I guess it is gone forever.
