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.

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...
