thanks. I keep trying to come back, but between extra hours doing some consulting work, and technical woes with my laptop pcs as of late, my free time is eaten up. just discovered that I can't send email on my laptop (complains that I am missing some DLLs). Ann's laptop has a hard disk that is failing. I tried all weekend to install her operating system to no avail. Time to crack the case. Hopefully I will get back on here soon. I did want to wish everyonea happy Easter!
