Hi Wayne, Just wanted to leave a comment on what a great resource your listserv is for the Vse community. I always said that the best place to get resolutions to the real tough problems is through a venue like vse-l. I am always thinking "what do other shops do?" or "I wonder if anyone else has had this problem?" It has bailed me out on more than one occasion. My Thanks. to you and all of the subscribers.... -- 11/03/98
