Well, given the fact that we are primarily media producers and media 
systems designers who "also" do our own code, I guess we don't have a 
lot of the know-how or "proper approaches" that comes from being "true 
programmers". We don't do C, C++, Fortran or Cobol. We do Director (less 
these days), Flash, PHP, QuickTime (through LiveStage), iShell, and 
now - Revolution. Nor do we have any history with "card languages". 
Habits we used in multimedia development have carried over to Rev, and 
using "CR" and the like was probably one of them.

We learn a lot from the Revolution lists, and are trying to adopt better 
techniques. But I can tell you FWIW, that one of the world's largest and 
most sophisticated multimedia installations makes use of that serial 
interpreter, developed in Rev - running day in and day out on a P166, 16 
megs of RAM and Windows NT 4.

We spent more time doing extremely high res animation than we do 
coding... but we're learning. Much of it thanks to you guys.
