Not to rub salt in the wound but my server often has quite a delay so
I may not read messages of warning until 12 - 24 hours after they
have been sent.
So .... just a reminder that sometimes late responses are not an intentional
disregard of the warning or meant to be disrespectful.
We are at the mercy of technology and it doesn't always do what we want
Yours most respectfully,
