Re: Smoking Man

geez... ~18 lurkers + 10 frequent posters = ~28 actual users.

Perhaps if rsi made the price of IDL a little more competitive some of
us lurkers would be able to stop re-implimenting the idl code posted
here in matlab 6!

PS: The myths about matlab requiring tonnes of memory aren't all that
true... I have 128MB or ram on a p3 and i'm doing just fine... Volume
visualization is way better in 6 and te gui is way better than idlde
will ever be!
