I never upgraded beyond version 8.x (under Mac OS 9.x), because the latter still does everything I need it to do.

Due to my active involvement in security-related work, I have always avoided Facebuck like the plague.

By "bounce back," do you mean that posts get returned to the sender, not to the list; or do you mean that the list is still active with posts? If the latter, how do I subscribe?

Joel Dreskin and David Mendels were both knowledgeable and responsive Macromedia sources of FreeHand (and Fontographer) technical support. Sandee Cohen wrote "Real World Freehand 8" (see pages 169 and 175 for a couple of pieces of simple line art that I contributed), and Olav Martin Kvern wrote "Visual Quickstart Guide for Windows & Macintosh."
Graham Allsopp is one of the Owners of the UK's CARTO-SoC cartography-relaed e-mail list, which is a good source of FreeHand advice:http://www.soc.org.uk/cartosoc.htm

I am not yet familiar with Ron's work, but do hope to become acquainted with it in the future.
