I don't know how you have the patience and time to keep doing this, but I appreciate you trying things out, summarizing what you tried, and the actual progress on the bleeding edge cases for Wine.

I don't really get all the details, but it's nice to see progress and it's nice to see users actually testing the experimental stuff.

The praise may be invalidated coming from my mouth, but I feel you are a staple of GoL.
Keep doing what you do!
