>> I am curious, since you guys do get all the technolgy worth exploiting:

ROTFL. You obviously never worked for IBM <grin> - while some may get the
'latest and greatest' hardware it was never us - heck it took me 9 months one
time to get a laptop capable of demoing the software I was out talking about!

 >> Is it possible to have her laptop for the Code session, have the laptop have
an Infrared port ....

Well I've yet to get an infrared port working worth a darn but .... It would be
simpler to use one of the radio modems, but see my earlier points. The group you
work for has to be very well connected (in the political sense) to get those
kind of hardware goodies and those are rarely the folks who need it.

Of course there's regular phone lines too, and I have done it that way. The
speed is rarely impressive though and certainly not what the user would see on
his local LAN. The people you're doing the "show" for will also rarely thank you
for the extra cost that your phone connection requirement caused them. Also, the
more things you try and do in a demo the more likely it is to screw up. The
developers want you to show off "latest and greatest" which inevitably means
you're running in a permanent beta-code type environment. Since Code can show
off just about everything (except CL prompting - which is where this thread
started I think) why take the risk of adding one more complicating factor.

Having run Code/400 on a Win NT platform for the past six weeks I now have a
good feeling for how many of the problems that I used to experience were
Code/400 related (a few) and how many Win 95/98 (lots). Sadly I'm back to Win 95
this week.
