Furthermore, I think this conversation is something that might also help me
better understand the model, but I'm not 100% clear on what's being
discussed.  After reading the thread I've gotten a better idea, but if
someone could just drop it down clean and clear that'd be great, or send me
a link to something that could do it.

One more thing, I AM familiar with event driven apps, and OO.  The thing is
that I've done all my OO with C++/Java classes so the C way isn't as *nice*,
at least I'm not convinced yet, I might stand to be proven wrong and/or
shown the "light" ;)  I've also done event driven in Java, but again, it's
different here and I'm lacking the segways.

Thanks again!
