Thanks, I was not familiar with "tug". I will definitely investigate it
further. I am also in total agreement with you statement regarding
donations to the Foundation. How much money (I don't really expect an
answer) was donated to the Java group. Yet, they never delivered an
up-to-date version.

By the way Frank, agreeing with anything I propose on this forum will
probably draw Poly's wrath not to mention the general disapproval of
the masses at large. Unfortunately, the "Something for Nothing" mindset
permeates all too strongly though the community. I honestly believe
that there are users here who would rather eat garbage than pay a
dollar (currency of your choosing) to have a fine meal.
