BTW, the fix for that show-stopper bug was all of one line and took me about 5 minutes to spot and fix -- I had neglected to initialize a pointer :-(

As Murphy says, Shit happens!

From "Programmers": "Programming is good training in the scientific method. For example, last week I spent five hours learning that "50" + 1 = 501 in my scripting system. That truth was available to me the instant I discovered the malfunctioning software, but it took five hours of investigating, digging in, and challenging assumptions before the truth was clear, and I could move on to the next problem."
