Hi Karsten,

Having been using this list for more years than I care to think about
I ought to know my manners better. It was a timely reminder, it's easy
to take the help one gets here for granted. I don't tend to post so
much nowadays with workloads etc, but it's the only list I stay
subscribed to. I do on occasion sit with a beer on a boring evening
and amble through the posts, and, occasionally, I note things with my
setup that seem a bit off.

Without wishing to tempt fate, my setup works well for me and works
well. Often as not because of advice given in the past by list
members; anyway, manners cost nothing and they do have a value for the

All the best
