What benefit is there is running off beersmith vs. just making the whole thing spreadsheet based?

Quite a bit.  I don't have to write the recipe database backend.  I don't have to rewrite all the various fomulas, and debug them all.  I have written many millions of lines of code in my career.  I know what it takes.  I gripe plenty about BS2, but I'm a long way from redoing it all myself.  I'd rather help make BS2 better.

I'd like to do something like that. Still trying to figure out how to manipulate the xml tags though and which ones are available.

I posted a complete list of all xml tags in bs2. Brad sent me the source code for them and I extracted them all. Its a sticky post over in the tips forum I think. I'll post my custom report when I get home next week.

I hate when ya'll start talking 'puter speak  :P

Seriously, your custom report sounds like something I had started. I like to keep things in a spreadsheet....just seems more.....umm organizable (even a word?)...anyway, you know what I mean.
Anyway, that would be cool to have that, Tom.
As always, your help is appreciated.
So, now, it's off to brew. We'll see how it goes, I'll try to keep track of as much as I can
Oh, yes, I bounce back and forth between batch and fly sparging, trying to see which I feel more comfortable with. Fly sparging just seems to take SO long.... brew day is long enough as it is. Today will be batch, since that's how you had described it.
Report back this evening
Thanks to all for the help!!

Looking forward to this also. I currently have to make about 50 adjustments to a spreadsheet everytime I brew.

first runnings - the wort that you drain out of the MLT before adding sparge water. 
Second runnings - the wort you drain out of the MLT AFTER adding sparge water.
Post-boil - the hot wort still in the boil kettle. 

ok, now that I'm on the same page...
Strike water: 4gal even
First running: 4gal in, 3.25gal out
Second: (calls for a 2 step sparge) 1gal in, 0.98gal out
Third running: 5gal in/4.02gal out
total into kettle: 8.25 at 145* pre boil gravity-1.051, ph mash out 5.8, (I think I should have let it mash for another 15mins, it called for 45. I checked my gravity, but it started at 150*, so by the time is was cool enough to test, I had already set the heat to the kettle to boil, next week I'll run it at an hour, see if I can get that gravity up)
Post boil gravity 1.063, again a bit low, I think originating from incomplete mash.
My hops, I did a volume on those and it turned out 20oz by volume. (did it like mom use to do the old Crisco thing... cup of water in the measuring cup, added the hops, subtracted the difference)
And this time there was 34oz left in the mash tun and 13oz left in the kettle.
