Well, I have found this a most interesting subject, having been a
developer in the past. Your mail has spurred me on to do some research
and I haven't had as much fun for ages. I am even thinking of trying to
dust off my programming past and wright a little app myself.

I am going to look at the RAD tools to see which one looks the easiest
to pick up.

Thanks guys for the inspiration.
