Colin! Mark!

I feel better already. Is Catherine Kunicki here?

Mark, you are correct, it is intermittant. Now msg works fine. And I see it tells you the current stack.


How do you live without Rinaldi? I know that it is possible to work around anything, one always could. But I am going to miss "fullFind".

Hi Craig,

Welcome to the list. I'm sure you'll see a lot of familiar faces here 
and will quickly feel at home.

The problem with the message box is well-known to me. It is a bug, 
which sometimes occurs and sometimes stays away. I hope it will get 
fixed soon.

Best regards,
