Thank you Jeremy.

I guess Pascal prefers his code instead (see below), where it says:

"Shane is NOT reponsible for bugs in Scid"

Looking at the exact same lines of the source code are interesting, as 
Pascal's code has the same mis-spelling as me and has capitalised NOT 
the same as I did.

append str "Shane is NOT reponsible for bugs in Scid\n\n"
append str "Shane is NOT reponsible for bugs in ChessDB\n\n"

Very odd, how we both mis-spelt the same word and both capitalised NOT. 
I could almost be excused for thinking that line was taken from ChessDB 
and the word ChessDB changed to Scid, complete with my spelling error!!!

All the best.
