I was joking about the Mt St Helen thing, Reggie. Helen is one of
the prolific support providers here. As such, she will 'cut to the
chase' rather than waste time and words. She knows she doesn't need
to coddle me. Also note that despite me vexing her to no end (it's
what I do; sometimes it's all I do <grin>), she went over her
explanation a second time. That's called support, and she's darn
good at it. I understand that it may appear harsh to others but
<sniff> I'll get over it ;-)
