Having spent the day working: Hey, mainly spent threading coloured beads 
with the 4-7 year old crowd: easily one
of the most pleasant ways to make one's living!

I returned home to see LiveCode 8.0.0. DP7 build 2, but as the 
*Application Browser* was still *inaccessible* from the menuBar
all I did was blow a big, wet, noisy raspberry at the monitor.

Anyway, having had supper I will go hunting for those things that all 
the whizz-bang LiveCoders who do clever things with
LiveCode miss but still affect how people like me [think school teacher 
who wants to do more than flipping PowerPoint].

Wet, faintly obscene noises, Richmond.
