#111043 - call it what you want
Responding to: Oliver Sedlacek's previous message
Call it what you want, the most important is the tool to have.

For example, I am (ab)using Excel ocassionally for the weirdest type of calculations, although it was not intended for that specifically. I have seen once a full-featured bookkeeping plus stores management built on Excel (for a one-man company, but with quite high turnover).
An another example, maybe more relevant here, I am using various terminal programs for the 'RD2s ISP and I went as far as writing a "script" for tera term to make things easier.
It is not the most appropriate tool for it, but it can be convenient in the terms of availability and flexibility. You determine how will you use it. Of course, it may turn out to be completely unusable (e.g. the Excel-based bookkeeping will most probably crash if a secretary would use it instead of the guy who wrote it for himself), but here I feel is not too much to lose.

So my suggestion would be, start a thread here, call it "my project blog" or whatever, ask in the first post that nobody else would contribute and that's it... or am I wrong in something?

An another approach might be, if Craig would have time to stitch together someting wikish, to use that...
