I don't quite understand?
Do you mean that I
a) was replying to everyone instead sending post to you
b) was replying to everyones post
Any guidance is always well accepted
(if not always followed)

Before anyone answers this
may I clarify one thing (at least)
I'm not always asking for myself, but to let others see the answer
My answer would not be as detailed as John's (for example)

There are a lot of newbies - specially now that the 50G is out
(and the keyboard simply works)

"none of the above"

The thread which included the additional program as mentioned
has a post by you within it, and you also posted another message
(to another thread) four hours after my program was posted,
so I thought that you might have seen everything posted
to the group around that time (although of course
nothing is certain or reliable on the internet).

If you can access Google Groups (which
has been returning us nothing but "404 not found"
for well over 24 hours), or even your own news server,
you might be able to find it; hope it helps.

I've been on this group for only a couple of weeks,
but already I notice that explanatory and tutorial
posts like the above from you *are really good!*

You probably have copies of everything you've posted
here -- perhaps if you scanned through them, picking
the hopefully-many that you think most tutorial, etc,
and gathering them into one huge "Meyers-FAQ" would
be *really* useful to *everyone* here, both old and

Of course, all it takes is lots of time... :-(

But maybe something?

Nope -- but Google does (along with everything *ever* posted):

X-No-Archive: Yes
(This message may self-destruct in one week :)

Thanks for your kind remarks, and best wishes.
