Yes, you're right of course. thanks for reminding me. I don't want to send
someone down bunny trails. Many of my solutions are one-offs, quick and
dirty. If they work, I can always clean them up and "do it right". You have
to experiment with the timing of a "send in.." solution, but the wonderful
thing is: it should work anywhere, relatively independent of platform
speeds. Very nice.
