Well, It's coming together finally. I spent most of the
weekend painting and cleaning. My bedroom ceiling and walls
have been painted and the carpet has been cleaned.

I have been cleaning up the HD of my desktop system by
moving important but usually unaltered info onto Zip Disks.
Speaking of the desktop, it's definitely time to consider a
new motherboard, processor and memory. Everything else can
wait for a little longer. The P200 has just about had it.

I have recently picked up an interest in the SEUL/EDU project. I may
be starting a project aimed at school accounting. I
have found that most software designed for use in a school
system is mostly crap. You would not believe the crap that
is sold for thousands of dollars to school systems every

For example, the accounting software that we currently have
was coded in Microsoft FoxPro and has the most horrible interface.
The app can crash very easily because the code has
hard-coded window positions. So if you set your resolution
to 800x600 on some machines the app crashes with an error
stating that the window would be off the screen. The whole
program looks like it was thrown together in a couple day's
time. It's really that bad.

Well, I am going to end it there for now. I will continue
this later.
