    Cool

    To the guys the emailed me for the BT plans Thank You. I refered everyone to my yahoo group where i have all of my great projects stashed. That prob wasn't the thing to do since some people don't like the yahoo groups. So i will figure out another public place to stash the large anounts of files that i have and post a link to them...Bob
