[OS X TeX] OT: graphic arts proportion wheel replacement utility

A while back, I came up with a UI concept for a replacement for the  
traditional graphic design proportion wheel used to calculate scaling  
percentages between different sizes, or a size as a result of a scaling  

I finally found the time to code it up using Runtime Revolution (  
http://www.runrev.com ) a HyperCard clone / successor.

This is an alpha, w/ no icon and some scaling UI issues (and it may not  
even calculate correctly all the time), but I'd be interested in  
people's thoughts on the UI and overall concept:


I'm posting a Windows version as well, and could do a Linux one.

Anyway, if you find it worth the time to d/l and try out, I'd be  
obliged if you'd provide feedback directly to me. If anyone's  
interested I'll provide a gisting of the feedback on request (will  
probably work up a web page on the thing at some point).
