Every so often, the 'Notes community' hears of something needing done, and like a well-oiled machine - leaps into action. Well, perhaps not as well-oiled as that... More realistically, one of a huge extended network of people hears of something, and steps in, spreads the word. Wallets get opened, things get organised, and some good is done. Ed organised a quick piece of help for Stan Rogers, and I'm proud to say a whole bunch of us stepped in to help. Stan, as you know, is a very prolific poster on notes.net - always there helping out.
More on this here. Thats what friends are for.
