Well, of course the big "S" will have done this. :) This is his baby, so I imagine he's tested everything about it. As I pointed out to Brett, I did it more as a proof-of-concept, so authentication was never considered. The advantage, for me, of my dynamic code, is if the application fails, or is sending out alarms, I can send a command to restart it, or tell it to shut up. All I have to do is send it an email and tell it to "get a grip". :) -- Sincerely, | When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries of Ed Dana | life disappear and life stands explained.
