Hi Y'All,

Support for MacOSX Services is on my list of things to do; there's even

Aiksaurus is English only, which is a pity. It would be great if we
could develop it to use other thesaurus data files, such as those at:

Any volunteers?

The Cocoa version of Aiksaurus was developed a long time ago and
there's no plug-in for CocoaAbi, yet, but it should be easy to get one
working... also on my list of things to do.

Ciao, Frank
