Huge thanks, Ken.
I think the question should have begun with "Can anyone recommend...."
because it's the recommendation I was after.

Makes you feel stupid, doesn't it, when the brain takes a holiday.
I spent years editing computer articles for a magazine and just a few

logon to...

Might soon be time to hang up the boots, I think.

Thanks again, Ken.
