Nina --

Interesting you should mention ASNA.

Some brilliant minds over there. And they now have Roger Pence on board,
who's not only entertaining, but very forward-looking and very smart. Great
asset to ASNA.

I'm a VB programmer who came over (to the Dark Side?) from RPG and OS/400.
If you and other RPG programmers want to expand your career opportunities, I
would VERY STRONGLY recommend ASNA's VRPG. Great product (Uh ... yeah ... I
was a beta tester ... why do you ask? <grin>).

Seriously.

Peace,
