Me too. I have a simple setup, so haven't really had a need, or opportunity
to delve into it. I have gleaned a lot from "lurking" and reading all the

Again agree. I'm not a proficient C++ programmer, and find the code quite
scary, but personally would like to see this type of discussion too so by

Any gurus out there who want to lead us newbies?
