Subject Re: Directory deleting weirdness
Date Mon, 22 Aug 2005 21:08:19 GMT
Hi Vincent,

    Thanks for responding.  Right now it isn't totally critical that I 
have that directory, so I'll raise that point to in the Cargo list and 
wait and see what happens.  Personally I don't really like the fact that 
our app copies this folder straight into the webapps directory, but I 
didn't write it that way.  Maybe I can convince the person who did that 
it should be changed:-).  Not likely though.  I'm at the bottom of our 
short hierarchy, so my input is sometimes ignored.  Time for a new job, 
maybe...  Thanks for your help!
