Hi Shane,

You've done a great job with Scid!  I am impressed with the latest version and
believe that the next version will surpass even some of the commercial products
:)

The browsing tree works miracles in teaching openings and the new tablebase
support is great too.

What I miss is simple clipboard support so that I can just copy-and-paste stuff
from the Internet or from some other Windows program.  (Yes, I use it under
Windows :()

Thanks.
