I'd shout halieluya !!! if I knew how to spell it!!
I tried it once but forgot to put my username after the -a naturally it 
didn't work.

Then I resorted to reading your instructions again and realized I had not 
put in the username.
This time it worked!!

Brings back memories of my S.A. at work who when asked a question would 
always ask "DYRTFM???"

Thanks again,
