It is there grid that you are connecting too with the viewer of your choice,
so yea it is there business.  As much as we all want to think that sl is
open source, there is only parts of it that are.  Im sure no one is going to
stop you from using and open grid with emerald.

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by
