Whoever forwarded my email concerning ntfs-3g to Szakacsits Szabolcs, please forward this as well, since the email address he provided bounced!

I copied and pasted the entire message and just now double-checked it, so yes, that's the whole message, and no, I didn't miss a line. Regarding the version, uh, I can't find it. I even read /usr/local/include/ntfs-3g/version.h and nothing there! I built it from the latest port after rebuilding my port tree.

Now, I hate to disappoint you, but my satellite Internet connection is going to be turned off at any time. Could be days, could be midnight my time. I quit paying ;) If that happens, I won't be checking email until around Wednesday, and will only be in front of a computer with an Internet connection once a week (for the whole day). GMT+5, will sign on around 9:00 my time. But keep trying until you don't hear back from me ;)
