You'r not dumb, but persistent ;-) The thing is that I can use REBOL in two projects because it is cross-platform, small, has a GUI and is network capable. And it generates executables. TCL/TK would have been the only other option, but I don't know any TCL/TK developers in the same league as Gabriele/Gregg. If this had to be web-based, I would have either chosen a different technology or a plug-in would have been built. Look at it differently: there are two projects that will fullfill a need for people who want to work at home (securely) or ISPs that want to provide a user-friendly analysis tool. Both REBOL based showing some stuff that is not done yet and as open source available, so people can see what is done and *how* it is done. One step at a time... By solving a concrete problem in a superb way the REBOL community is helped best. As a project manager I don't care about the technology, so the fact that REBOL works here is a plus by itself. Hopefully some people will be blown away by what I (we) can show them. --Maarten
