Macro? Bah! Function I think. Then again, I'm normally anti-macro (they
dont like me, I dont like them.)

What you ought to do is add a seperate flag to the pfile for this. I
didnt, but started wishing I had not too long ago. Other than that, this

strength to change those I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of
those people I had to kill because they really pissed me off.---Unknown
