I installed this and have allocated it some tasks to gain familiarity
with it. I must say, not bad, the concept of the 'spreadsheet'
in lieu of a tree is very good and I may well continue using it beyond
the present tasks. It has features well suited to a disorganised person
who needs to be and tries to be organised against their nature,
paradoxical as that may seem.

I downloaded this, I got a warning message when using it on the laptop
so must put it onto a memory stick tonight. I have no idea what I might
use it for  :)
