Thank you AC.

Searching for it came up with much the same.
Thank you for your post that does explain it. Perhaps I have learnt somthing too :)
"..flashing the taskbar brings us close to a triumvirate of bork."
Now triumvirate not a word I am familiar with, so I looked it up. Now confused. Should I be reporting this to corrections?
Is there a word with letters in an order like triumvirate that makes sense in that sentence? so the spell check suggested triumvirate?

Anybody remember the name of the nlm on Netware 3 that repaired volumes? Remember it being the thing I copied to the DOS disk after setup cos if you volume didn't mount you needed it, and it was on volume after install...
Cannot remember its name though. A quick search says vrepair.nlm or toolbox.nlm for later Netware but neither sound right for Netware 3.

Re: Scraping the barrel this week?
I can reverse this, so back in day a fax did not work. IT told to help some odd phone system tapping about in in shell looked fine comparing config etc. Fax still not working, another fax not working. Third party called and arrive on site we demonstrate the issue. They change the cable (yes we had always used the same cable to the fax machine when testing) and it worked. Opps. Third party cheerfully said 'I always check the cable'.
