Hi to everyone....

Did this make it into ports yet?  I assumed it would be under finance.  However, I can't find it anywhere in the ports at all.

Thank you!

P.

Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for all of this info. regarding the port changes that should
be done. I haven't played with the port system in a while so I'm
definitely a bit rusty and I'm sure there have been many changes
(Hence the Apache 2.0 bit... :o!) Anyhow, I had to skip town for a few
days for something EXTREMELY important (golf...) but I will try to get
this fixed and submitted within the next few days.

Thanks again,
Janky Jay, III
