actually, the blank cards thing is a good idea.  i'll do that.

last night i had to grit my teeth to keep myself from writing something.
i had emailed "greetingcardpro" and asked if they'd ever even *consider*
porting their product to linux (they had a FAQ that said there were
"currently" no unix ports).  his reply was that they'd NEVER (sic) port
their software to linux.  what an attitude!
