      Boy that sounds too complicated by an order of magnitude. Now I know how it
      must feel to be a user of one of our products waiting waiting for us to do
      the obvious thing. The problem with COM is that it won't work for Mac users.
      At least through the file system, if you have a PC on your LAN somewhere,
      you can have it run Groove and still be part of a workgroup from the Mac
      desktop. We have a special requirement that we at least try to include the
      Mac people in all our Rube Goldberg puzzles. ;-> Dave
