Yes there is, forward it to yourself and boot up that bloody awfull MS stuff... or get the sender to use uuencoding ( hint,hint Clive). I tried your patched binary Clive and it works just the same as the unpatched version for me, but I've never had the volume control problem that you have, so I'm still scratching my head and getting splinters.

'Ere who you calling mad, you wrote the damn thing!
As for Quark, everyone knows that quarks don't exist, they were dreamed up to justify the employment of scientists and mathematicians all of whome are 2 peperonie's short of a piza.

Ah yes but differentiating muLinux:-

let dx=muLinux
as dx -> 0
then dy -> insanity

looks like we're back to Quantum physics again.
