    Thank you, Steve, for the outstanding presentation on October 19th! The video presentation, and the Q & A that followed, was really great and I learned a lot from your presentation, but the Q & A was particularly interesting, with a discussion of keyboard designs for typing SignWriting, and how inputting Chinese into computers has evolved and is becoming easier - which may in turn inspire new ways of typing or inputting SignWriting as well - so much food for thought! ;-)
    Shall we chat at 7:30 PDT?

    Saturday morning office hours are open.
    Last week, I finished updating the legacy server to fix the last of the open SSL issue. Everything should be working now.
    This weekend, I continue working on the column maker functionality for @sutton-signwriting/font-db

    Hello dear Steve and Vallery and other all :),

    i am glad to see that signPuddle is getting better and better. This is very great. :)

    We plan to use the SignEditor of signPuddle to get the Unicode we need for sign2mint.de.

    I remember that you can fill the global dictionary with sign fonts. Is that no longer the case?
    On the https://www.signbank.org/signmaker/#?ui=de page I can't find a function where I can add a new created sign script together with a German translation to the German dictionary.

    Here, however, I myself am also not sure whether this function is necessary. I am just thinking of a way for our team to work efficiently. We don't want to rewrite similar signs completely, but just modify similar signs. :) Maybe it is better to add SWU. Do you guys have any experience?

    Best regards Uta (from sign2mint.de)

    Hi @liesestrick_twitter , new development is focused on the Sutton SignWriting packages available on GitHub and NPM. https://github.com/sutton-signwriting/
    I continue to support SignPuddle 2. The source code is available on GitHub. https://github.com/slevinski/signpuddle2
    The SignMaker dictionaries are read-only copies of SignPuddle 2. Every night, the SignPuddle 2 dictionaries are converted to the SignMaker dictionary format. https://signbank.org/signmaker.html
    The German Sign Language dictionary is available in SignMaker here: https://www.signbank.org/signmaker/#?ui=de&dictionary=gsg
    If you wanted new signs to appear in the SignMaker dictionary, you would have to add it to SignPuddle 2 and wait until the next day. https://www.signbank.org/signpuddle2.0/index.php?ui=8&sgn=53
    Saturday office hours are open. Work continues on @sutton-signwriting/font-db

    Hello Steve, Uta, Sign2mint.de team and everyone - So happy to be in touch. I have not forgotten, Sign2mint team, that I promised to explain the symbols in the ISWA 2010 in more detail and I look forward to the discussion, hopefully later today. It has been a long time since wew put the ISWA 2010 together - since 2010 ;-) So I need to find our notes but most importantly, I am here too to ask questions - of course Steve knows the software side of it - but how we would write different signs is something I love to discuss and I usually do this on the SignWriting List, so if anyone would enjoy chatting on public email with me about how to write signs, you are welcome to join the SW List: https://www.signwriting.org/forums/swlist/
    Meanwhile, Steve, this morning, I can chat on Zoom if you wish - are you available 7:30am Pacific Time?

    Hello Valerie, I hope I did everything correctly.
    I wrote a public mail and introduced myself in it. I do not know where to find it yet. :D

    @signwriting_twitter
    Hello Uta! Yes. Thank you for joining the SignWriting List. The List got your email posting!
    You did an excellent job. ;-)
    I will answer you now, on the SW List, and maybe I can help you find my answer ;-)

    Hi Uta - I just answered you on the SignWriting List. Did you see my post?

    Hi Valerie, sorry, I think, I still have not understanding this mail-system of Listserv. I have no idea, how I can navigate and answer. :( My english is not good, sorry. By chance I came across your answer, but I don't remember how I did it. How can I answer?
    Thank you for your question. and yes, I need your help. :) Greetings Uta

    Hello Uta! Your English is excellent, plus you are welcome to write in German. Years ago I lived in Denmark, so back in those days (the 1970s and 1980s) I spoke Danish and did some work in Germany. I understand written German fairly well, and then we have Google Translate, so our two languages can be understood one way or the other! Feel free to write in any language you wish ;-)
    Very sorry to hear that you are having trouble learning the SignWriting List. I will find some information for you now.

    Hello Uta! I have written several private emails to you at the email address you gave me on gmail, from my email address sutton@signwriting.org. For the moment, let's forget the SW Lisr. Did you get my private email? I asked if we could Zoom or Skype or use Google Meet? I believe over the internet we can figure this out. I have been worried that you are not receiving my private emails. I will write again now. Look forward to meeting you ;-)
