Excellent!

I think you could count on a number of volunteers for beta testing. Of
course, we'll all be griping because it doesn't include all of our little
pet features, but I suspect you're used to that by now. ;-)

As I noted in my reply to Mark, I'm hoping the program will focus more on
supporting the 'creative' stuff I need for *campaigns* rather than on
automating the 'mechanics' for running individual encounters, but that may
just be me.

Cheers,
Christopher

Thats basically what the program is all about.

I hadnt thought about a custom calendar, but that is a good idea. I'll see
if thats something I can do.

SM is primarily for running games online - its usable at the table, but not
its main focus. Some of the at-table functionality (multi-monitor use, for
example) will be making it into the new program.
