I unscrupulously stole the Netsaint code and made it into my own project. All I did was change the interface a bit and incorporate some piddly enhancements in order to lure happy NetSaint users away from that pathetic little project. Anyway, I'm sure they're much happier now.

If 28 is the name number, one might wish to change the spelling to achieve a more harmonious and fortunate number...

There may be occasional delays and obstacles to one's plans, but these may be conquered through developing patience and by continually cultivating faith in one's own powers to transform. The number 20 brings the blessing of vivid precognitive dreams, plus the ability to manifest the happy ones and cancel the negative ones...
