Thanks for you offer Chipp,
I m not Keith, but I would like to ask you too, because of your clear 
answers. Some newbies here asked me. We are from an eastern ex Comecon 
country (Ukraine), therefore we prefer Dreamcard (the price of course). 
But... Why does the same testfile (they mean: stack) have 7 MB with the 
Dreamcard player and only about 2-3 MB as a rev build standallone (They 
know my test apps). "How should we explain this to our costumers, if 
they have Internet, in Ukraine, which have mostly Modems (pay for 
DL-time)? Cant be the Startup-screen?
