Hi Graham.

Nice to hear that there is someone developing a windows based tesla 
program. I just have one thing i would like very much in such a program.
I would like to see all the parameters on screen, and be able to change 
one parameter and see the other parameters change as i go on. Like a 
"smart" overview.
I have tried the other available programs out there and all of them lack 
this little "extra". I don't think thy're bad but we need fresh stuff, 
So, is this possible, or if you dun't understand what i mean please ask.

Cheers!  //Matthias "Tesla" Andersson
