Making the move...

Well, I was looking for solution to fasttrack an entirely different 
project when I ran across Revolution. I've been running it on a 
Groundhog Day WinBox, but it's dive-time for me, most certainly. This 
list is also a very fertile group, I think, and that's helped immensely.

Sometimes I think we programmers take far too much pride in the 
*complexity* of what we do, and shun truly productive environments 
because "anyone can do it" kind of thinking. (You're reading this from a 
guy who writes Pike/Ruby/PHP/C/SB code in a freeware editor just to be 
macho man because I'm surrounded by people 2/5ths my age. Job security.)

This is a useful, powerful product, and the way it gets more exposure is 
if we turn out high-quality, attractive and powerful websites & apps to 
prove it.

With apologies to VB lovers anywhere, this ain't exactly Visual Basic.

Regards,
Peter
