Roger,

Ahhh....yes!  That was it.  I really enjoyed using that tool almost as 
much as I enjoyed all the Amigas I owned.  I don't mean to take this in 
another direction, but that OS was truly ahead of its time.  I remember 
switching to the Mac after I felt like I was the last one to still use 
the system.  The Mac seemed so inefficient next to my true 
multitasking, OS fits on a diskette, Amiga computer.

The good old days.  :)
