I've manually converted some character cell screens over to CSP.  The hardest part was just figuring out from the underlying code where and how the data was being stored in order to maintain consistency.  It wasn't object script, so I needed the CSP to perform direct global writes to the DB the way the server side hot reads did.  There were some system variables that I also needed to utilize that weren't automatically available to the new front-end.

Good to know.  I'll be taking the course before I try for my certification, I'll just need to save up the $2,800 since my points game isn't quite up to snuff!

Since I also prefer Putty, I figured I'd try it locally this morning.  Works like a charm.  Also testing how screenshots look on the community board...

Very cool.  Certainly some cost as you work your way down the list, but for the balance of readability and performance, I prefer #2 - the $tr one.
