    Re: I need urgent help! File reader?

    You aren't helping yourself. Not many people are going to go to some site and get an unknown file, especially if it's an entire project, and even more so if you haven't explained what the issue is....

    That was only one possible meaning. Another would suggest that books don't make good fertilizer because of the poor carbon to nitrogen ratio.

    THAT is what I'm more worried about. We haven't had effective use of the tests we already have. It does seem to be getting better out here in the hinterlands, but it doesn't seem consistent.
