this project aims to be a free, flexible, and easily modifiable visualisation tool that allows a user to intuitively understand their online social group structure. projects that this software have been based on are social network fragments and buddy graph -- this code has all the functionality from its counterparts (except zoom) that could be implemented in a generic fashion. for example, colouring is not in this software as currently it is impossible to colour the graph without asking the user to classify his or her entire mail network manually; it is too hard to do automatic classification and colouring of e-mail addresses to include it in this version. it should be noted that this entire field of "who knows who" visualisations are not useful for anything except as a curiosity. the images produces from this program as well as the other similar ones are not useful as any real metric of who knows who.
