I have a small spreadsheet I use for ballistics, it's small enough to run on a Palm computer. I have a spreadsheet that does Coriolis and I imagine that with a little time I can add this "spin drift" Yaw of Repose item too. Perhaps I could just build a small program in Visual Basic to do all this and put it out here on the site. I would require some technical assistance for the items I've not dealt with in the past.
What's others thought on this software issue?

Dave, What kind of spreadsheet are you talking about?? What all does it do?

I might be able to help you with it. MIGHT!!

Now that I have joined the ranks of PDA users, I would love to have such a program!

Just a bit of mental health shreadsheet fun I was having. Just something to keep me busy and thinking about ballistics.

I have at times had it on a Pocket PC, didn't encorporate the Coriolis portion but I still have the calcs.

I guess I could be convinced to start it up again.
