Hi Richard,

thanks for your comments.

> Not saving basic demographic information properly
I have gone through that part of the code and am improving
it as I speak. It's a bit hard to guess what was so
disastrous but it sure affords improvement which I am
working on.

There is no need for excuses.

Well, you refuse to list those you find.

Please do report how you can trigger this sort of hang. I
have not experienced one for, what, months ? Which doesn't
mean it doesn't exist.

I wonder how the other bug reporters do it then.

What you offer is a GP office GUI design. Our *record*
design is better than yours even if you don't understand it.
Read why in the Wiki.

> and I still cannot for the life of me understand why you won't use it.
Because it was too difficult for me to implement then. And
no one else seemed to be interested in implementing it

Well, here is what I did:

- write a backend schema (no, yours was not sufficient)
- write middleware
- write a GUI
- connect the GUI

Had you taken the burden of writing the GUI off of my
shoulders I should have rejoiced in connecting your GUI to
the backend.

What you are saying here is: If you make me King I will join
your rank-and-file. Ain't that contradictory ?

On another note, since it doesn't matter what the backend is
like why don't you write the GUI until all that's left is
connecting it to the backend and then let me connect it ?
I'd have no moral or technical trouble whatsoever with that.
