It is so satisfying to be able to write whatever I need. Anyone else
done little personal stacks with Rev lately?

I just wrote an app that I have needed for some time.  It keeps my
external hard drives from going to sleep.  I may be working them
extra hard, but I just can't stand the spin up time it takes to get
them going.  Makes my whole system feel sluggish. Now all my HDs are
waiting for my every command.  Ooo..aaahhh...haaa...haaa!

Well, it wasn't last night, but I've written a quick & dirty text  
cleanup stack to convert iTunes playlists to table format for pasting  
into a Word template to make a CD cover, and I keep all my recipes in  
a stack that imports and automatically formats recipes from the web  
so I can print one out when I need it. Keeps me from accumulating a  
file of butter-stained mismatched pieces of paper.... And a stack to  
append an email signature containing a random quote. This is besides  
my chronic project, a stack that allows me to print notes and  
prescriptions, track meds, generate correspondence, fax covers,  
automatically addressed envelopes, etc, without which I would not be  
at all able to manage my psychopharmacology practice. Started 15  
years ago in Hypercard, now with lots of bells & whistles, lets me  
manage all the documentation for a clinical session in a couple  
minutes, maybe worth trying to port to a standalone to market someday  
-- perhaps if I can ever retire???

I'm an amateur, but I've been able to do lots of useful and fairly  
sophisticated things with Rev, and I love it despite at times tearing  
my hair out over debugging some obscure piece of syntax. I mostly  
lurk on this list, but find it very useful.
