Re: success, say all works again

chris,
"quirky" would seem a damn understatement, judging by the misery you've been 
put through. I wish we could all accept the jaws not only has annoying and 
inconvenient glitches in every new version, usually something that used to 
work fine but becomes weird, but it's just so frustrating. Besides which, 
see, you'll get a problem like this, and I won't, and someone else will get 
something else, and no one will ever explain the pattern or how these things 
happen this way, so inconsistently. It's really a bit much, to put it 
politely. Yet we press on, because the program is such a gift to us who 
can't see the screen, or see it clearly, and it's really a wonder if you 
ever think about it as if you were just a tech savvy sighted person learning 
about it for the first time. it's a really killer app. But it's so goofy, 
and FS never explains how this weird stuff happens to one user but not to 
another.

Ugh. Well, glad you're functional again, man. Congratulations.

I honestly have no clue why it happened, seriously.
I had no clue those files were even in my user settings folder, so i
didn't even think to look there until that tip came through. guess
that's just JAWS being quirky.
