I have watched the web page and that was exactly what I was proposing.
There was only one more addition to that layout. That was, I was just
teasing the concept of unity because I felt that it was prominent to put
users at ease with unity.

No. I too felt the same. It is not offending to put up some comment.

It is Aveem Ashfaq.

This was the actual plan. Drawing a sketch. And that was a trial run. But
never mind, I completely chucked it. Just used the final image.

I would like to become an expert. Just tell me what software they used. I
will explore my way into it.

And by the way, I am glad you liked my story.

And a question, should we keep on using the community mailing list or get
some new list or something.

And sorry, I have set my subscription to digest mode. So, I am replying to
all of them at a time. Should I change it to non-digest mode.
