You know, its a paragraph like the above that almost convinces me I don't
know diddly about programming and should take up a new hobby. Or is it just
a case of "same old language, but new buzzwords to confuse"?

I have yet to figure out what the advantage to objects are, let alone
exactly what objects are. Sure hope theres a fantasic tutorial for FB3 to
simplify objects or someone want to take a stab at this for the few of us
that feel more comfortable with inline assembly than high level anything.

Wanna scare a possible FB3 sale away? Let'em read that first paragraph.
