[TowerTalk] Just one problem with MultiNEC...

Larry, again I don't think that is inconsistent.  I took a week's vacation 
in early July, and within 3 days my mailbox had overfilled (10 MB worth) 
with spam and viruses and was telling everyone I was maxed out.  In the 
absence of info from someone who knows Dan, I would try him again this 
coming work week, when it's likely he will be back.  In the meantime, have 
you tried downloading a fresh copy?  That should certainly tide you over.

Please also keep in mind that he has a real job, and that MultiNEC is just 
a spare time thing.

73, Pete
