Hi Warp,

Just that I did not test higher Resolutions on my 1 GHz machine. If you need
more, just ask me
then you get a "eat on your own risk cake" for testing. It was really just
that I thought noone
would need more. For what do you need more? Theoretically I would say that
there is only a technical limitation in PicPender-2 for the output file to
be smaller then 2 GB :-) because thats the stringsize-limit.
This has to be tested if there is interest for that ...

Since last version it has some "hardcoded advertisment" for my brothers
diving base
in Thailand. Besides that you are right, I would NEVER produce anything that
Spyware (so long i don't get an contract from NSA for that :-))))). However
I really wanted to say that explicitly so everyone can be shure about that.
Also the fact that you know explicitly that SMPOV will NOT connect to the
under no circumstances is something that is worth to be told.
For me, if I have such an statement, its more easy for me to trust the
as well as the author.

kind regards
