      Does that qualify me as a TECHY!
      Why create a blank database for an upgrade?

        What a catch-22. Can't be brief for the impatient (and just look here by how much: 3.5.1 came out, and within a minute there was a stampede to read the changelog and d/l it!!) -- yet the techies won't stop being lazy and just follow a linky????

        Come on you coders, let grandma get the brief and you guys can follow the link and jaw about the details in chit chat or Win-Win for everyone.

        Just thought of something: could you hide the long list of details with a increase/decrease link <-- and just call it "Expand for more details" for those who need them? Would make the thread much more tidier, and grandma doesn't have to get intimitated by all the code talk <-- which can be daunting and scare folks off.
