[chirp_users] Mac Problems

I've used CoRD on my Mac to run an RDP client on Windows. Small footprint and
I think it can even shadow a session. I won't call Dave names, obviously he has used
TeamViewer before. It may be as safe as mom's apple pie. Now is it your point that
someone is "insane' for installing an RDP client on Mac? I would disagree completely. 
I've used them to shadow client sessions to determine if it was a case of operator error
since the late 1990s. So show the man some respect. If you use Chirp he's one of several
software engineers that make it possible for you to use it free of charge and have a valid
opinion of what it lacks, or be heard about bugs you discover.

Dave,

You're insane if you install these types of software.
