    I am assuming our old accounts will be available? This is probably rhetorical and doesn't need an answer based on the assumption that things are being worked on as it looks like they are.

    Thanks guys, upgrades are frustrating and we are standing behind you!

    Wow, I didn't realize that there were so many problems. The list of additions & improvements is daunting as well. Guess I'll just muddle along using a fraction of the available features as always. ;)

    Thanks Ray & Tex for the time and effort you put in here. You are appreciated.
