I'll make that change. Should be up on UIP today. Thanks a lot, Geoff.
Glad you read my request and didn't bail on the thread after getting the
assistance you were looking for. There are other hamsterians in
news.software.readers, should you seek assistance there. Regards.

You're up. In fact, you're leading off. Hadn't changed that lineup in a
while.

Thanks for advice re n.s.r.

Well, it wouldn't be unusual to leave a thread when one thought they were
finished doing biz there. And I realize that with TB you can't flag
direct replies to your own posts by distinctive coloration of headers, to
see without fail that someone responded to you. If that idea just threw
you, here's a screencap of me reading this thread. The blue article is
the one I'm currently reading (and in this case responding to) and the
green articles are green because they're *direct* (not further downthread)
responses to my own posts. (And your direct reply is green when I don't
have it open.) Note the first green line -- that's a collapsed thread,
but it still shows green because it *contains* a direct reply, which will
be green itself when the thread is expanded. This alerts me to direct
replies without my having to have all directories expanded. I do this
with Pan, Xnews, Knode, slrn...and possibly other installed and configured
news clients that I don't use often enough to remember perfectly (probably
Dialog and Gravity, at least, also allow this).
