Remember KISS concept ?
Or writing a code for 4K of memory ?
( Yes four kilobytes ...)
If you really want to get back to programming -
do what majority of folks in this discussion are saying..
Contrary to prevailing opinions - it has all been written ...
look around and find your app

for instance

local "fast food outfit" is on my walking route , so I stop for coffee
almost daily
it takes newly hired person about a dozen "click this / click that "
to take my order
it should be ONE click process

it takes seasoned employee to GIVE me my poison
BEFORE just opening the register to take my money

help "newly hired " with your app...

( maybe he will stay employed for couple of months -
most of them cannot make change and get fired within weeks )

Cheers
