Apologies.  Not meant to bite anyone's head off, nor to be rude or 

I had a bad weekend - 6 power failures over 4 days that shut down my 
server, storms that knocked out comm lines, telco can't tell me when I 
can get broadband connected to our new building.....  Doesn't justify 
taking it out on someone who posted.

Anyway, I agree - and my post was pretty snippety.  Always seems that 
way afterwards, doesn't it?
