My small prog is a long way from being ready, it works for me, but for 
everyone is a big jump & alot more testing to be done ;)
Then I shall start on the GUI (again so as I can say "I did that")

Then maybe once all of that is done I will feel confident enough to say 
'lets give it a go' ;)

But I am a long way from that yet, and as a "rainy day project" the 
problem it's designed to overcome might well have been solved by then!!
