Ahhhhh......so that is what it is.

Well I hope it is sorted soon because my mail box is full up and there is no way to delete as when one is deleted...there are half a dozen to take it's place.

I have alerted GR of the problem

Let us be patient! It's no doubt all in the name of upgrade.

I've worked in a computer environment and all new inclusions must be tested first before being included as part of the daily routine. Testing is done when the computer us shut down and often shows glitches which need to be ironed out. However - GR never closes down as a courtesy to us users - and testing is down while us chatterboxes merrily chatter away and complain when we are asked to do something which we don't do normally. This is caused by the testing - showing that a new idea may be affecting an already good idea - so needs correction - all whilst we continue to chat.

As I said - let's be patient.
