[REBOL] Re: how to offset position of window?

OMG! This one word is what I have been yearning for for a long time!
While writing to the list, I've wanted to say for awhile that I started
with view when it was in beta (open beta) and had tried my best (putting in
alot of time) to write a "simple" program to keep a checkbook: add, update
and delete a list of checks. The documentation was skeletal; I ended up
figuring out much of what I needed by hacking through the VID objects. I
was not happy with my workarounds, and finally got hung up on how to delete
a record from the list.
Praise Carl and RT for REBOL/View 1.1! I actually hesitated to download it
because of my earlier disappointments, but now that I have it I've found it
to be as easy as I demand it to be. I've returned to my checkbook program
and replaced the ugly, non-working list code with sleek text-list code
which works! I've also revisited another project I started and gave up on
cause it took too much time, which is actually intergrated in to my work.
Soon it will be complete and I'll be able to show it off to my co-workers!
Ok, so I could have used 'list to do the same thing, but I don't think
using 'list "makes simple tasks simple".
Now, I've virtually left my old love, REBOL/Core, for a new romance:
REBOL/View! And I know that there are all kinds of new cool words that I
don't even know about yet 'cause I keep seeing them pop up in emails on
this list, so keep 'em coming!

BTW Of course it is amazing at the speed of releases and number of
platforms available for such a small group of people. However if you've
ever seen Carl it's understandable as he visibly radiates energy and
enthusiasm. It was obvious at the Sacramento Amiga fair-thingie a few years
back how much he loved his work. He's made me a believer!
Oh, and I have been a BASIC programmer at heart also for many years. Really
really liked AMOS/Pro for the Amiga. Actually, that's what my last
incarnation of the checkbook program was written in.

I don't know the answer, but ...
