Users that come here are not bottom-feeders. We're not lazy, complacent, nor unable to find time. There are some excellent people here with top-notch skills and facilities. If we can take the time to fuss over %BIFs and EXTRACT then we have the time to experiment with and fuss over how best to use radio buttons, scroll bars, push buttons, and windows. Frankly, I can't imagine an excuse for the lack of a sub-file wizard, session-to-session communications, or having only green, blue, and pink as useful colors. -----Original Message----- From: Pat Barber [mailto:MBOCEANSIDE@postoffice.worldnet.att.net] Sent: Tuesday, October 26, 1999 6:16 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: What can be done to enhance the green screen applications?

My point was this... this subject and many others is ignored by the programmers of the world because: A: No time to learn B: Don't have the right equipment C: Management will not let them D: Programmer is too lazy to learn new tools & tech... E: All of the above... Programmers are the bottom feeders of the computer world.. They do not get to make many of the right decisions because they can't justify it or somebody above them will not see/hear the light.... BUT programmers are the VERY first to bitch about the pc's taking over the world,etc,etc,etc.... The people who use the system are the ultimate noise makers and management will do anything to NOT hear that noise... +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +--- +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
