Why don't follow this approach ? this sounds OK for me, I am asking early because we can discuss it here. I am not against certificates, but development of some useful plugins was cancelled already and I do not see aby reason they should open development to implement certificates and pay for them, if they provided them free of charge. I see it from development's POV, even I am not developer ;-) -- Bye Marek Mikus Czech support of The Bat! http://www.thebat.cz Using the best The Bat! 3.99.24 under Windows XP 5.1 Build 2600 Service Pack 2 with MyMacros,XMP,AnotherMacros, NOD32 Antivirus plugin and AntispamSniper v 188.8.131.52 Notebook Toshiba, Core2 Duo 1.83 GHz, 1 GB RAM ________________________________________________ http://www.silverstones.com/thebat/TBUDLInfo.html
