Michau, All valid points and said well. I just feel that it had to be said that I don't think we want everyone coming on and acting dumb, like some other Commodore places online. I was just trying to avoid turning this list into a circus side show... That was my central theme and point. But I do agree with your comments about the archives. There are two search engines for those who want to search discussions from the past. I have also used them for hardware and software research. It shows you what has been said so you don't recreate the same mistakes in design or software. Kind of like a learning tool, you might say.
