    I should have said »the web-based application based on the DanceData data«. 
    This and Alan's standalone program don't have anything to do with each other 
    other than that I'm using Alan's underlying data (with his permission). I 
    have no control over Alan's plans regarding his software and vice-versa, 
    although I would of course be happy to compare notes with him whenever he 
    likes (as he knows).
    In general, Alan's program currently has the more sophisticated search 
    functions et cetera but only works on Windows PCs (although you can run it 
    under Linux using WINE, a Windows-like environment). My software is fairly 
    simple-minded as far as searching is concerned but is accessible from any 
    computer that has a web browser. Eventually my software will have better 
    searching and, as I said, other strange and wonderful features that make 
    sense on the Web but probably not within a free-standing program.
