Oh, don't get me wrong. I'm not accusing you of being
selfish. That comment was meant more for whoever was
going to send you the answer.
In fact, as a general rule, if an problem gets sorted out
via private email, a quick note to the list describing
the solution is a really good thing. Others learn, and
the archives become even more valuable.
It's interesting that this list is attracting people from all
over the place. Just there today we have a poster from
Bulgaria, a few months ago there was a guy from India and
last year I helped out a guy in Indonesia. I wonder how
the list population breaks down between Irish and non-Irish
(for whatever defintion of 'Irish')... Colm, any guesstimates
on how many members have country TLDs other than .ie?
