What was wrong with the Don't work message? I got yours saying don't
send those, and the next message was from Frank with the web page where
I got the info to mofify the code and I do know how to do that. But it's
odd you need to re-write code to get it to run on FC6.
Anyhow I know have it running. So the don't work message worked.
