Insanely Great

A few weeks ago, we were exhibiting Accordance at MacWorld Expo in San Francisco.

MacWorld Expo is always exciting for many reasons, but for me, the best part is seeing the reactions of the people to whom I demonstrate Accordance. There are plenty of "Oohs" and "Aahhs" and "Wows," but my favorite reaction is the incredulous look which seems to say, "It's crazy that you guys even thought of all this!"

I wish I had a dime for every time I've been asked why we would develop Accordance as a Mac-only program. Why in the world would we neglect ninety-percent of the computer users out there to focus on such a small minority? Why would we eschew all those potential sales to serve such a "limited" market? The answer is simple: We aren't out to take over the world, we just want to create Bible software which is "insanely great." And where except on the Mac can you create insanely great software?

I'll leave it to you, our users, to judge whether Accordance really qualifies as "insanely great." Still, whenever I get that "you guys are crazy" look, I tend to see it as an affirmation of insanely-greatness. It is an indication that we have met a need our users may not even have been aware that they had.

Interestingly, it is often the little things that elicit the crazy-in-a-good-way look. But that's a subject for another post . . .

Accordance is indeed an "insanely-great" program.

I appreciate and have greatly benefited from your commitment to making accordance and insanely great program. I've been a user for about 3 years and it just keeps getting better.

I know I've said this before and God is my witness, it is not said in arrogance.

I've been a professional software developer for 22 years doing low-level "systems programming" and design work on operating system, file systems, and object database components at one of the largest software companies in the World.

Additionally, I'm also working toward an advanced degree in Computer Science, and I'm also a very part-time, yet serious Theology student.

Accordance is simply the best overall software product I've ever encoutered. The functional integration in Accordance defies reality. Roy Brown should win a Nobel Prize for the excellence of his design and programming effort.

Roy and Helen Brown as well as their staff provide simply incredible support!

God Bless you guys!!
