For the record, neither I nor Formability Inc operate,, or
Those sites are owned by Solid Conversion, Inc. That is the other Ron

I do however run ...a small RP discussion board.

The STLQuote product line was developed by me in 2002, and as you
mention was acquired by APP in 2004.

    Are you thinking of STLQuote? They're the only "canned" system that
    I know of. STLQuote was owned by Formability, which is (was?) one
    of a series of companies that Ron (James) Barranco is behind, which
    includes,,,, <>, <>, and
    <>. The earliest correspondence I have tor
    STLQuote is April 2002, and May 2002 is the earliest copy of the
    website that <> maintains. Of course,
    APP owns STLQuote now, and if they're concerned about the QuickParts
    patent, it probably isn't in their best interest to reply in public.

    If it wasn't STLQuote, do you remember anything about it that may
    help track it down?

    I hadn't heard of the "combover" patent, but I have heard about a
    patent for exercising your cat: 5443036 (although how the cat can
    see *in*visible light eludes me.) The patent you're referring to is
    4022227, if you want to look it up!
