      DANGER WILL ROBINSON! DANGER! DAN (OH SHUT UP! If they don't know any better by now they deserve "PCDLRN has generated errors and will shut down now.")

          I've done the nasty, and the one thing that bugged me (no pun intended),was the FCF that wouldn't stay off. they now stay off.

          I am now trying my pagination issue.

          All in all not too many bugs that I'm complaining about, get it guys?

                    I seem to remember someone havinga problem with cylinder something, but not me. What was the issue again?

                          I like the very first one "247724 - The same point have diferent meas. results".

                          Makes you want to go right out and buy a second copy. I wounder if these "prototype" versions with the oopses in them will be collector items one day.

                            I have a large stack of them on pristine discs, how much will you give per version. 3.6 should be the most expensive!

                              At least they are addressing the problems quicker than they used to. Look at how long 3.5 was out before the mr's showed up. And it still wasn't all fixed. That's my impression at least. I'm sure someone can cite and example of how I am wrong though.
