Hi All,

We have won, thanks to you guys. System up and running as it should; and the poor old BlueDog has learnt a bit about computers, had my problem resolved and, (most importantly), had the pleasure of meeting and dealing with the Seven Forum volunteers!

Thanks again to all concerned for your patience, efforts and help.
