You beat me in. If he accepts I'll have the points xferred. Otherwise, he can reject mine and accept yours.

This happens a lot... too bad you can't "lock" a question while you're working on it :)

Sorry to take so long to get any response to both of you. My friend is unavailable at the moment, so I cant tell you if any of your answers/comments work. As soon as I can I will throw the points in the ring! Thanks for prompt responses folks. TTFN scrounger
