Now you should also send to this BTIP list the part you removed,
about the very interesting & successful software stuff you did on your
mission,
& include also the part about your current activities
& future plans, too!

Awe, I can't imagine someone really wanting that in their inbox. You're welcome to forward it if you like, though you might also include a link to http://fsdev.net/portfolio/ because there's some more information under the FamilySearch section. I should probably rewrite that page to include anchors for easier navigation, as well.
