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 :()
