    W000p! You fixed it! And for each and every filetype too!
    Thanks a lot! This just made may day...

    Just out of plain interest (as i have been wondering this ever since i noticed the vast amount of fixes/information on this site)... are you a programmer or do you consider yourself a very advanced system administrator?

    You're most welcome Ness. That's great news.

    I used to program some in BASIC, but it's been a while. I play with other languages, but mostly just small stuff now.
