Agreed!  I was just trying to find out some info :)  After Theo's response 
and that other guy who completely put me down and thought I was a "fake", 
I had a lot of off-list responses for people who gave me great 
suggestions and told me to ignore the other negative responses.

I think some people just don't know how some companies run.  Some are 
actually like I described.  Fast-paced, and not necessarilly by the book.

I'd like to consider that as well.  Just as fast and stable?

I've been sending emails back and forth between Matt Dillon.  Based on his 
responses I don't think I'd be very interested in setting up DragonFly 
right now until its a bit more developed.
