    Re: Cap'n tips
    From: Lynn Ogden

    I've been using Cap'n for years, and find it to be a complete program.  Like
    you, there are some things that could be better, but I've learned to live
    with them just as we all have with other programs.
    To secure my laptop:  I place it on a piece of that non-skid stuff they sell
    in all boat stores as shelf liner or place mats.  It's kind of a rubberized
    mesh.  Then I secure it to a bulkhead with a piece of elastic cord around
    the screen, low where it is hinged.  It hasn't moved yet!
