    Right; there are things that can't be determined. For example,
giving 1/2 a passage on each and every mammal existing today would make
a skyscraper out of the Bible; the point is, it's not there for that.
But kudos on GETTING there- most people just balk and complain, never
looking for themselves.

   (Let's keep the longer, meatier discussions off list though, aye?)

    Right; but I have a server and five workstations.  The workstations
are prone to getting switched off, or changing users...which is why I
suggested running it strictly as a server...

    Uh, no.  The act of offering and trading _copyrighted_materials_ is
the black art. And while television, radio, blogs, and everything you
see will tell you any Christian is a madman, I have to insist it isn't
so. Chat me more off-list, and you'll see.
