What I did with Rev last night

I wrote a stack that takes my receipts and scheduled business meetings and
calculates my business mileage from point to point to point each day.  Gives
a detailed report of each trip and a summary for each day.  It skips
Saturday and Sunday and fudges a starting mileage for Monday based on my
average mileage for a weekend - varies it using the random function for the
fudge factor... Pretty accurate if I do say so myself...

I'm about to modify it to take a text file from the Entourage Calendar and
do the same but using location on each calendar entry.

I hate manual trip logs because I keep forgetting to update them each day.
I got a GPS to produce a trip report but haven't got it up and running yet
or talking to Rev either.  My little Rev calculator seems to work almost as
well... Jim
