Seriously Arfrever, drop the rhetoric here, and go fix the profile compatibility issue. Everytime you bring up dot's in use, you ignore compatibility, and every damn time it gets brought up I keep having to repeat this. It's not productive and this has repeated for at least a year now. People who want this need to sort the compat issue rather than sticking their heads in the sand. ~brian
