I am also very thankful to John Marino. I don't know him but after long
time portmaster user I try to use a Synth when it came to FreeBSD and I
had a problems but in my long experience from OS/2 to Freebsd I never
had so good help as I had from J. Marino and I love his Synth too.
Thank you, Mr. Marino.
