Subject Re: [RT] Flowmaps
Date Thu, 20 Jun 2002 12:29:02 GMT
Oh god no...businesslogic in javascript.. . no no no.  I'm having 
nightmeres of "Sr. Application Developer"s (with emphasis on the

throughout in this "flowmap" as one big huge jumble of spaghetti.

I'll write on my concerns with the flowmap in about a week when I have a 
bit more time to study it closely (hopefully)
