Sorry, guys. On Sue's account? behalf? what's the right word--, she specifically said she was not writing for herself: "Okay, I cannot access the chatroom and I accept that.. I am writing on behalf of those who wish to access it, have the proper equipment, but are unable to get any help in the chatroom." I suspect, from having come to know Sue through her posts, that she would not have been so, shall we say emphatic, if she were writing for herself instead of on behalf of other people. smile Cindy --- Jackie McBride <abletec@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Sue: > > Have your friend contact me off list at > abletec@xxxxxxxxx > & we'll see what's up. > > BTW, in case you're wondering, I also made the same > assumption as > Scott.
