Okay. I didn't loose as much as I thought and my external hard disk just needed to be unplugged and plugged back in. What I did loose, though, was my graphing routines. They were a pain in the neck and I believe I will be quite content to use other programs for graphing.

I've noticed that LibreOffice is a lot quicker to open than OpenOffice with much less fanfare.

I've trimmed DANSYS down somewhat. The massive documentation is one thing that has been causing a lot of the bugginess. I took that out and am going to just keep a list of function and their syntax. I'll also be using DANSYS as a tool for my tutorials and will offer it on my website as soon as I can recode the basic functions. Then I will update it occasionally with more advanced functions.

Sounds like you've taken on an interesting and useful hobby. Unfortunately my interest in programming got squashed early on by trying to program a TRS-80 to work calculus problems. I find the process incredibly frustrating.

There are tricks (of course). If there is code available to do what I want to do, I use that - but I have to translate from the language the code is in to LibreOffice Basic. Once I have a block of code I will be using over and over, I save it in a KeyNote file of common code. That way, I can open the file and copy the code over to the program I'm working on.

In other words, I do as little real work as I have to. That's very important when there's a virus stomping around in your gray matter.
