Hi Pat,

No actually, I work from home 95% of the time. Before I started doing that,
I spent most of my time with a bunch of analysts at least 10 miles from the
nearest actual user. Is that a safe enough distance<G>? Now that you mention
it though, I guess time clocks, and bar code scanning in warehouses, laser
scanning at retail stores is the only recent real data entry I've seen...

Regards,
