Hello,

I've never seen such a stupid software like agilents "MSD Chemstation".
I wanted to do a 10 point calibration curve, but I've stopped after 5 standards, cause they took me 5 minutes to fill in and my company closed, yesterday.

!!!1000!!! mouse clicks are neccessary to fill in 5 standards into the compound list, when every standard includes 10 compounds.
And it's an Excel-Sheet -unbeliveable- (the calibration table), but the programmer was so funny to not implement "Copy&Paste" or even "TAB"-key.

But that's not all, after you have filled in a compound and want to switch to another, the software ask you:
"Do you want to save?"
-NOOOOOOOO, 1001-times, I DONT WANT TO SAVE AFTER EVERY COMPOUND!
That takes another 50 mouse clicks for 5 standards.

Agilent seems to be a funny company.
Now, I hate mouses!
