I'm not richard - honest.  This paranoia must end.

What did you suggest with respect to fixing it?  It may satisfy me.

Don't take offense, but one should never confuse writing software with
accounting.  I know that for a certainty, I've had to use some of those
programs, you name it, i've seen it, and from a financial point of view,
i've been disappointed from time to time.

Accounting is not only the physical distribution of accounts, it is also
the analysis and employment of accounting controls.  Fiscal responsibility
has yet to be a programming option.

And you know what Randy, in my professional opinion you accounting
programmers have come along way in the past 25 years - so pat yourselves
on the back.  Do it now before the Y2K mob arrives.
