Thanks dude. Have you done anything like this yet?! I sent some feedback recently about an idea for morphmaps (ticket# 6428). I think it would be great, and flexible with a huge space of possibilities. I think of a new idea to use it each day. What do you think?

Well, I kinda made it this way, because I wanted to make sure users have the latest version of certain libraries. (No "oh I haven't updated" complaints). Perhaps I went a little too far. However, if it can't get the files it should go to the cache. Try unplugging your cable. :) I admit it is inconsistent with the way of the view desktop.

I made sure it's ready for that - I guess I forgot to use the ability. Oh yeah, that's when I was reminded about how I should quit a program again. I was diverted onto an ongoing issue.

No no, there's nothing more to it. I wouldn't waste your time reading the code, golly Mr Sassenrath. ;) Seriously, I'll have to read the source again to see what you mean... Anton.
