I went to sourceforge -- but it proved very difficult to work
with their cvs stuff. At least, at the time. I do have Kura
under cvs now, and it's a simple matter of opening a port in my
firewall and creating an account to give people access to the
I've started porting Kura to Qt 3.x, only to notice that there
isn't a gratis version of Qt 3.x for Windows yet, so I'm dithering

Fantasy, absolutely. Based on the adventures of Murxao in the temple of
Qunayir (both can be found on my website). I'm now at 22.000 words, and

Denden are different languages.
