It's always a breath of fresh air knowing you guys (and gals) are always keeping a sharp eye out for these vulnerabilities so the rest of us can spend time where we're supposed to, tending to our business ;) I am a premium user and I know sometimes people read comments and don't know if it's just some sort of plug to sell more. Makes no difference to me what others think. I just had to let you know "I love you guys!" thanx!!!!!
Thanks Duncan. Much appreciated.
