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.
