Gee, Mel. In about 5 seconds, after I identified all of the areas on the Net I
wanted searched - some five or six items that took another 10 to 15 seconds max.
- I got a list of 41 items/articles/apps/noticias, etc. re UltraFind - much more
than I probably want or can digest in this lifetime. I think I'll save my
Saturday and continue to use Sherlock. By the by; sorry, I get you UKers
confused. I was thinking you are in nz rather than ca.  *-}
