" While I'm not _widely_ known, I'm hardly "unknown" - I can guarantee that
at least 9,000 programmers in the world pay direct attention to whatever I
say and will tell you that I'm one of the most knowledgeable programmers on
the planet."

Did the self-righteous attitude come before or after you created this
"tool"?

Regardless, I've been watching this topic (both on here, as well as over on
dev@svn. There, realistically, has been very little response to this
"tool". And most of what has occurred has been informing you of how or why
what you're doing shouldn't be done (or in the case of flash drives, a
better way of doing it).

Anyway, it's great that you created a tool for yourself to use. Just don't
get pissed off when others don't see the value or desire to immediately add
the functionality into TSVN or SVN.

While I'm not _widely_ known, I'm hardly "unknown" - I can guarantee that at
least 9,000 programmers in the world pay direct attention to whatever I say
and will tell you that I'm one of the most knowledgeable programmers on the
planet. And, you apparently didn't read the readme.txt file or you would
already know that I've entrusted 4 months of non-committed work to this
tool. As far as MY data and myself are concerned, your opinion is not
important. I'm not forcing you to use the tool and I didn't expect anyone
but myself to actually use it. I was simply offering it to those who are
interested in making their WCs mobile.

The response to the tool is mixed: Some people really like it and they are
the ones using it. Others, like yourself, don't understand why I wrote it
in the first place. I wrote it because _I_ needed it. Not because other
people needed it. I'm merely sharing it because I figured someone else out
there feels the same way I do.

To me that is what Open Source is about.
