Munge or do not

I’m highly amused at attempts I’ve seen in public forums to munge email addresses.

New Product and New Forum

We released a new product today, though it’s been on the website for about a month to start drumming up interest – and that it did. NebulaXLite allows MV BASIC to create "real" Excel workbooks – and it seems to work with OpenOffice and Google Doc Spreadsheets too! We also have a new forum to [...]
