Keep your chin up. What you have to remember is, there are companies in the
computer industry which use "complication and excessive code" to keep
themselves in business. However, there are those of us out here who don't
subscribe to this and appricate the work you are doing. So keep on shooting
and I believe you'll start to win some battles and ultimately the war!
