Re: XWindows

NOTE: because I don't like doing data entry or futzing around with presentation on paper, I came up with a way for the computer to DO ALL THAT WORK FOR ME because I'm LAZY and I _HATE_ _DRUDGERY_. Worked out pretty nicely for all parties involved.

Yup, I have much the same motivation which has led me to learning and doing all sorts of interesting things over the years :)

Much more fun to work out how to automate a process than to just knuckle down and do it.

(Of course, you have to be sure the time you spend automating the task looks good to management - if they realise it'll take you 50 hours to do and save you 5 minutes per year..... :) )
