[REBOL] Re: [glayout]

Hi Max,
> Anton, thanks for the encouragement.
The longer VID 1.3 takes the more interested in your efforts I become! ;) Drop a line when the new site goes live and I'll try and give it a spin (in addition to providing useful feedback).

I'm currently using VID to scroll a 1,000,000 row query result table ... it takes about 90 seconds to format and display the data [in a text-list] .... I'm curious to see how glayout performs. ;)

Yep, and then there's testing ... One useful technique I find with documentation is a "Quick Start" guide of some sort which gives the fewest possible steps to get "something" working. It's often enough to convince me [at least] to invest the time and effort into wading through 100's of pages of documentation *if* I can see the value demonstrated in a paragrapgh or two. Just an idea. ;) Regards, Ashley
