I wrote and sell an excellent (at least my customers and I think so)
‰140,000 line FB accounting software program with special tailoring
(configured by user) that is used in service businesses, stone quarries
(automatically reads digital weigh scales for invoice creation), a church,
ag businesses (extensive prepay capabilities), manufacturing, printing,
auction (tracks buyers & sellers), etc..

It started out as a QuickBasic program in 1986. I have almost completed the
transition from FB II to FB^3 (been working in this since last September).

I have been selling this to my local consulting clients but hope to
significantly expand sales opportunities.
