What a depressing confession! The tangential information one can garner 
from this use-list
is almost as valuable as the Livecode-relevant information; and usually, 
far more amusing.

If all you do it think along ramrod straight lines about coding then 
your coding is unlikely
to be creative an innovative; and as Livecode is, itself, both creative 
and innovative, quite a lot
of what Edward De Bono called "Lateral Thinking" helps an awful lot.

Be very, very careful, or I may send you a complete folk-dancing kit . .
