@dinosaur07: I'm retired these days, but I have developed in numerous programming languages on a few different operating systems. I've also designed embedded controller systems, as well as done analog and digital design. The point that I was making is that for some people, getting paid a pittance can sometimes make the difference between eating and not eating. Also, I've been around long enough to watch the bottom fall out of the shareware market. You would come up with a great concept, only to have to spend your time keeping people from stealing it. It makes me sad, and it's an indicator of what many people have become. To digress on my part Here's an example of the work that I've done for MDL. AFAIK, MDL is the only website to posess this info. https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/c-c-build-a-windows-explorer-extension-without-atl.60234/ Enjoy!
