      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'
