I'm in the procesa of building a Win3.1/Win95/WinNT contest application
which will be backward compatible with CT.  The Win3.1 version (16-bit)
will be a subset of the 32-bit version.)  I've mentioned my work on the
CT-user list and have received a ton of encouragement.  I hope to 
incoropate the best features from all the current crop and add a bunch

I'd like to hear from the contest community in general on their "wish
list"  I won't be able to please everybody, but I hope to use a lot of 
your ideas.

I've set up a mail alias where you can send your ideas:


(please note the underscores)

In addition, I'll have a webpage up in the future to track your wishes
and let you get hold of betas.
