Diabetes is a serious disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. There are 20.8 million people in the United States alone, or 7% of the population, who have diabetes. The number of people around the world suffering from diabetes has skyrocketed in the last two decades, from 30 million to 230 million, claiming millions of lives and severely taxing the ability of health care systems to deal with the epidemic, according to data released in June 2006 by the International Diabetes Federation.

I just wanted to compliment (more like praise) you for the continued development of an excellent product. I have been involved with software (writing, designing, developing) for over twenty years. I am truly amazed at the incredibly intuitive product that you have brought to the market.
I discussed the development of an Intranet yesterday with our VP and regulatory department at lunch yesterday and was able to demo to them what could be done with alpha in a couple of hours. It really impressed the hell out of them and they were convinced that I had been working on this for weeks. The Screencast tutorials are fantastic!. Without Alpha I would not even know where to begin in developing a browser based system that is so flexible and secure.
I recently noticed a post on the message board regarding Filemaker 8.5 . I had looked at Filemaker years ago, but found it very difficult to accomplish much, since it was not really a database, with the ability to work with only one table at a time (this was a while ago) . It really was not very intuitive as to how to do things. I figured I would give another peek before just to satisfy my curiosity. I found the same product that I had looked at YEARS ago/ I am sure it has changed and advanced, but I could not see it. All the same terminology (which never made sense to me) and it still appeared to not be a "real" database. I uninstalled it almost as quickly as it had taken to download it, point being that it just was not intuitive as to the how everything fit together. I am sure that by FIlemaker's fan base that it must be able to accomplish something, but just know it is not for me.
Your team at ALPHA is fantastic. You should be very proud of V8. Thanks again and keep the excellent software coming.
