Well, just a word of advice for everyone out there . Always, always always, keep your project in more then one place, because if your a dumb-ss like me, and only had it on your HD, and your HD get's corrupted for some odd reason, you lose 3 months worth of work
The really said part, is I had 75% of it done.
Oh well, back to square one.

Amen to that.
I keep a little 486 in the closet with CVS on it.

Arrrggggghhhh! Last night I was making a backup of my code and KAPLOOIE! The motherboard fried on my laptop before my eyes! I don't know what the damage is, but my most recent backup is two weeks old. I just finished doing a refactor of the GUI, too, with all the new testing units!
