Oops sorry!
Didn't realize it existed yet. It was just something I stumbled accros and though it would make a nice addition to FREESCO.

That's OK Dingetje!

I made a post (somewhere here on the forums) stating that anyone is more than welcome to repackage any of my packages for any reason (with or without my permission). In fact, I'll even send the /pkg directory and sources from my development machine if they want to start where I left off.

I was just hoping that if you found something seriously wrong with my package, you'd let me know :D

I'm having trouble with FTP right now anyway <_<
