Ehrm? Is this to be ironic or some such? :-}
Sorry to disappoint you if so; my language skills doesn't cover that :-p -
and secondarily; I'm not likely to have the time to do the redesign alone

MVC - Model, View, Controller - VEYR NICE. THANK YOU!!
 This very moment you put a name onto something that I have been
contemplating all alone 'on my chamber'. My B.Sc. classes did NOT cover this
kind of stuff (e.g. GUI creation) - not very strange really as they were
more hardware oriented.

 Do you (anybody else?) mind elaborating this a bit, maybe better off list?
My peculiar email address DOES work, just send away, I'll be eagerly

I'm not asking/expecting you to *teach* me!
Please, just take a few minutes and tell me those tiny bits and pieces that
makes it possible for me to get some kind of a grip of the concept, what
tools/books/... there are or you know about - and so on...

One more PLEASE: words and acronyms that are fit for *googling*

e.g. I wonder about:
 - Are you using some specific tool for setup?
 - If not, please give me some hints(pointers) on how you do it.
 - Are there free/GPL/LGPL/BSD tools to do this?
 - Names of commercial software?
 - There seems to be a stale project on (xmtpp below, 10KB file),
   do you know anything about it?

 - j-struts/MVC 2 seems to be a web/java adaption... good reading?
