As one of the Help U principals, I can attest that we made a point of
ensuring we had a full track of WinHelp sessions. Nevertheless, people
stayed away in droves ...

It's a TOUGH business to succeed in, believe me. Don't fall for the Mickey
Rooney/Judy Garland thing ... Just because you have some expertise and a
place doesn't mean you can have a successful and profitable conference ...

Regards to all the ex-Help U attendees,

>>I think that Joe wants nothing more to do with WinHelp.<<

That's my impression.

>>Someone needs to sponsor a WinHelp-only conference...I bet it would be

Probably, but who's going to do it. Help-U was great, but they're out of
the business now too.

>>Wanna get in the conference biz? You could do the "creative things you
can do
with dlls" and "translation gotchas" sessions <g>.<<

I'd love to do the speaking part, but not the organizing convention part.
I've been involved in the logistics end of conventions before, and it's not
really something I want to get into again.
