Hi, Glenn,
I guess it is all in what you know and what you are used to.  I think N1MM
is a fine program.  However, I am worried that since my brain is already
full, learning a new program would cause me to lose other important
information, such as my address or how to mix a martini.    So I will stick
with Writelog.
