Hi, that's the only argument I agree with where an IM system has a big advantage. But, remembering the older ML days, it mostly took only a couple of hours as well. And, the request wasn't lost or over-posted by new stuff. It's up to us to use the ML. As with every community thing, it starts working only if a critical mass of people is using it. And lately, a lot of us Rebolers were teared away to AltME. For myself, I will restart using the ML much more than in the past. -- Robert M. M=FCnch Mobile: +49 (177) 245 2802
