File - read from EOF

Thanks for the suggestion.

Actually the way I am processing the
data from the end makes it faster for
what I need in the long run.

I finally got it working but now I need to
clean it up and probably re think it again
since I did it so many different ways.

Thanks to everyone for your help!
