Dear fellow players:

It is my honor and pleasure to be able to bring CueTable to our* community. At this point, the software is stable across operating systems + browsers. Many thanks to everyone who helped troubleshoot!

For the holidays, I am very please to present everyone with a downloadable version of CueTable software at a pay-as-you-wish price. It will work locally without an Internet connection. The download link can be found at: http://cuetable.com/extras.html

<font color="red"> CueTable has started a new initiative</font color>

Think about this for a moment:
"There must be at least 10,000 table diagrams drawn in the past nine* years. But, how easy is it to find the one you want?"

Recently a group of friends and myself have been very busy with a* very interesting project called "CueTable Public Library". As of now* it is at the beta phase. We are looking for more volunteers to join + help us out.* Please send me email at volunteer@cuetable.com for details. The billiard* community will benefit greatly from this cutting edge creation.

Today (12.14.06) marks the ninth year of the original WeiTable and the ninth month of CueTable website. We have worked hard to maintain a good service all this time - with only limited resources. There are still many interesting and helpful projects to be carried out so I have set up a contribution page at http://cuetable.com/SupportUs.html , your kind efforts, whether as a contributor or as a volunteer, will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and have a great holiday season.

Sure, I've made a donation. The wei table has been an immeasurable help over the years for forum members to describe situations back and forth. Some even refuse to try to understand a description of a table layout, preferring only to deal with wei tables.

I really like these words that help describe your work:

For any group to flourish in a society there needs to be frequent communication among its members. Over time, the language used by a group gets refined and the number of specialized terms increase as the exchanges grow in sophistication. If the communication is visual, such as a picture or diagram, words may not be needed at all to get a message across. Any group needs verbal and visual languages that are both easily accessible and can support the communication of complicated messages. Without this development, the group will stagnate and, in the worse case, risks becoming obsolete.

Our forum lives would be much poorer without the benefit of the wei table. Thank you for doing this.

Nice post, and I agree that the table can be a valuable tool.
I don't have the opportunity myself to make use of it....but I'll see if I can add a few pence to the kitty.
Hope you all down there in Texas, have a nice holiday season.
