True. And, if you're really motivated, you can create
a new scripting language that works linda like
shorthand. You can use TextPad and create a custom
language module for it to properly flag your script's
elements, and then your authoring platform will be so
light you could save your employer even more money by
allowing them to sell all their high-power PCs,
replace them with Pocket PCs (hell, they even have the
.Net framework now), and have everyone synch up to one
central server. For an extra $60 per person, this can
all be wireless to boot.
