Well, work on my BeOS financial application is continuing apace — I’ve got half of drag-and-drop implemented, and basically all of the main pieces in place. Maybe, in a few days, I’ll be ready to release it.

I’m trying to think of a good way to release this application, in terms of making money. I’d love to be able to release it for free, and make money through some other aspect of the program. Pegasus, the e-mail client, is released for free, but you can buy full-scale manuals. I like that idea, but I’m afraid it would lead to skimpy on-line help. There’s got to be some way to do this without resorting to shareware (which I don’t mind, but I firmly believe there’s a more elegant alternative to).

Oh, and a new story is on Papyurs. I’m getting tired of doing Papyrus, I must admit. It’s costly and time-consuming.
