Should be fixed now.

Hi jr,
I've only had a brief look through your sorting macros (many thanks).

You seem to be fluent with the dictionary syntax and usage.

I don't really have much of an understanding of these.

At some point, do you think it would be possible for you to write a pov file
with some illuminating comments and run the dictionaries through their paces?

Sort of a "here's the basics", followed by: "and if you want to get fancy, just
look what you can do...!"


It might save me 20 or 30 humbling posts.   ;)

I'm not very creative, how about a collaboration?  suggest one of your
scenes/WIPs where one or more queues might be "handy", or simply something where
the use of dictionaries is of use to you.  I'll be happy to work it through with
you.  what say you?  ;-)


regards, jr.
