Okay that was a bad example..... But I think you get my general drift. There are some common variables that are truly universal and should persist.

Take for example that you store in common the say.... full name of the user who s logged in, and their extension. hat doesn't change on a logto. Some people use things like that in a LOCKED lause to say "John Brown has this locked, call him on extension 7204" so the sers don't have to call the help desk on locks, they can peer to peer it. Sure you can reread things like that. It's half white half black. o I clear half the common ? Or reread half the common? -----Original Message----- rom: David A.

Some have thousands of lines of code at in. Some of which set common (read "environment") variables, that you on't t* to clear, or at least that you want to reset if you do clear them. ----Original Message----- m: Bill Brutzman <bi...@hkmetalcraft.com> U2 Users List <email@example.com> t: Thu, Apr 12, 2012 11:52 am ject: Re: [U2] COMMON Size MisMatch ting my own dog food...
