Hey, Mike. The only connection between eartherdesigns and the error
message is that's where I posted the screen capture so y'all could see
Yes, all the NTB files are there and run fine once I get click off the
error message that Windows is throwing up. What you saw is only a gif
because it is a screenie.
I am almost never connected to the internet when I code - still on
dialup. You know us earth type people tend to be Luddites. ;)
I keep my computer tight as a drum and clean as a whistle. Haven't had
any virus or malware on my last two computers. Just an occasional
unwanted cookie. Must be all good earthy livin'
