What did I tell you? Guess eidetic is spelled "UltraFind" and the advantage of
being off in some ungodly place, half way across the world. Now I'll waste
half of the weekend finding and getting up to speed with another new toy. You
didn't say it was freeware; shareware perhaps? Seems like this code swapping
thingy doesn't save much time in the long run. Hopefully, we at least become
more accomplished FBers.

That's some cushy job that allows you to spend "hours" on the net.  *-}

Guess I'll use Sherlock to find UltraFind.

Thanks,
