I plan to try building your project using Eclipse. I hope you are making good progress. I looked at the early versions of MindRaider, and it is very interesting. Keep up the great work!

I wish I had the coding skills needed to help, but I am still learning Java/Swing/etc. Delphi is my normal development tool, so I think Java will be easy to learn (they are similar syntax and OOP).
