Realms of Wonder Newsletter, Volume II, Issue #2

I hope everyone is on there way to having a good summer (well, at least those of you above the equator.  To our Australian friends - happy winter).

This is issue 2 of the "kind of / sort of" monthly Realms of Wonder Newsletter (Volume II).

Realms of Wonder
Version 5.2.3 (beta)
Version 5.2.3 is available in beta. At this point, unless I hear otherwise, I will move it into "official" status this week.  So, if you've run into any problems with it, please let me know.  Or, if something you expected to be in this release isn't, let me know that as well.

If you're at all unsure if you have the latest version, check the About option, on the Help menu

Email me directly if you need the upgrade location.

It's updated with the information from the June 2002 Previews Catalog

Error messages in ROW In the best of all worlds, Realms of Wonder users would never run into unexpected errors while using the application.  Sadly, since we live in an imperfect world, this is not the case.  So, occasionally (at worst, I hope) you may receive an unexpected error message while using RealmsClick here for a detailed explanation of what the error window means, and what you can do to help me fix these errors.
Getting rid of bad values in the drop down list boxes This is a very common question, and addressed fairly completely in the FAQ in the help.  I've written up a fairly thorough explanation incorprating that as well as additional information.  So, click here to get all the relevant information on drop down list boxes.
Thanks to Josiah and FanBoy Radio in Texas I want to extend a big thank you to Josiah Miller, host of Fanboy Radio, FM 88.7 The Choice in Ft. Worth, TX, for doing an on air interview with me about Realms.   It aired Sunday, June 16.  If anybody listened, and I didn't sound like a complete moron, let me know.

Thanks again, Josiah.

See you all next time As always, if you ever run into any problems, have any questions, suggestions, etc., please never hesitate to let me know. I'll always try to get back to you the same day. If you do send me an e-mail, and don't here back by 2 days, I probably didn't receive it, so you might want to try again. My email address is support@realmsofwonder.com

Best wishes to all,
