Very possible. :) You know, the best thing would be if you would create 
a demo stack and post it to RevOnline or somewhere else where people 
could look at it. That would do a lot to clear up any misunderstandings 
and would make your technique much easier to follow than a text 
description on the list.

No problem, and you are very welcome. I want to pay forward, as they 
say. Lots of people helped me when I was learning, and I feel I owe 
something back.

I have a deep, long-standing love of xtalk and anything we can do to 
promote it is good. Tell your co-worker they are all wet. ;) Someone 
else on the list had a similar situation and took up a project that 
would have taken a C programmer months to complete. He finished it in 2 
weeks. The boss was convinced. You could try the same, if there is an 
opportunity. Watch their jaw drop. Smirking in response is allowed.
