Hi, Matt, In addition to what Sunanda said, if you have accidentally redefined a word, simply restart a new REBOL session and everything will be corrected. If you decide to use the "protect-system" option, you will also need to restart REBOL before the changes will take effect. user.r is run upon first starting up. Other scripts can also be run at start up if desired by including something like: do %my-startup-code.r after the exisiting code in the file. Of course, the my-startup-code.r file will need to be stored in the same directory! :-0 :-) Have fun, but be forwarned that REBOL is very, very addictive! --Scott Jones
