Nod, that one works, I haven't tried them all but the "purge" one's 
don't work, nor does autowiz. I wondered if there was a quickandeasy 
fix or if I'm gonna have to through it and see what it's calling :)

Nod, or how about IFEXISTS, and use the existing shutdown parameters 
- i.e. use shutdown die, then in the script do
IF EXISTS .killscript BREAK (or GOTO something) that.
Hmmm... I don't suppose there's a version of grep for dos? Trying to 
do the syslog bits could be tough....

I noticed something else last night! Despite setting free_rent as YES 
in config.c, whenever any character quits, all their equipment drops 
to the ground???? Weeeirdness.

See ya!
