Many thanks to you and Kurt! My cpu thanks you as well as it has lost 70 
headaches in the form of individual players. One could build a sandwich while 
waiting for the invisible objects to show up.I was confused as to player

sorry to inject beginner questions into this forum but.........such am I.
