Hi Techwr-lers!

It's good to be back after a 5 month absence! I would have liked to post
this a fair bit earlier, but I went off-line rather abruptly and without
prior warning...

I would like to give attribution to the original author (I tweaked it a
little to suit me), but I can't for the life of me find the original
magazine article I swiped this from...


The latest edition of the Cepek Corporation software (version 2.0), after
development and alpha testing for nine months, was released to the public
November 19 1995 three weeks ahead of anticipated deadline.

Version 2.0 is expected to be a substantial improvement over parent version 1.0.

New features include:

* an attractive little interface
* compact design
* compatible with laptops
* expanded memory capacity
* character-based (oh, that version 1.0, what a character!)
* uses DOS (Diaper Ordering Service)
* definitely WYSIWYG (What You Smell is What You Get)
* customer support is free, and as always, the best. Dial: 1-800-GRANDMA


* is often GUI, due to frequent interim releases
* hours of operation are erratic
* often causes the motherboard to crash
* lacks sufficient documentation (on-line tutorials included free of charge)
* Flush Right feature will take approximately three more years of development
* output tends to be garbled for the first several years
* inputs everything
* requires periodic and frequent virus checks/virus protection
* tables feature a bit messy
* function keys tend to get dirty, especially the pause key
* limits style feature of the parent version.
