    Jerry,

    Fixed. Thanks for pointing that out...I should have tested it. I think I kept typing after pasting the link and didn't notice it!

    I like it speedball!. A very useful littel program.

    It also reminds me when some time and motion people came to my organisation (remember T&M?) and started asking questions. One of which was "how long does it take to write a program?" I told the guy who was asked he should have replied 5 seconds - the program being

    STOP
    END

    A perfectly good Fortran66 program, and which also has no bugs.

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    It also gives me pause when a website or the software documentation -- especially for security software -- contains obvious spelling and grammatical errors. Wouldn't a company that's careful with its code also be careful with its English language usage?

    Nah.

    Nah.
    Have you tried to read a hardware manual recently (or for the last 20 years) I just did. Given that we are such big customers for Korea and China you think they would spend a couple of bucks to get some one half way competent in English to write the manual. Maybe I see a new tech company and a way to make a million,, o ou o where is the erase button??
