Hi Michael,

   I was thinking about doing just that before I sent it off your
way. Actually, I never made any changes (at least that I can remember :^)
to the sunview code, since I had no way to test it. So, you can just
drop it from preview.c and everywhere else as far as I'm concerned.

   Yah, that should be plenty good :^)

   There was some aviation related "fun". On friday afternoon, the
weather in Baltimore was right down to minimums. The BWI ATIS was
reporting 200 overcast with touchdown RVR about 4,000. Needless to say,
there were times when it was much worse, and I saw several missed
approaches while hanging loose and watching arrivals from the observation
lounge.  Fortunately, my flight home was pretty much on time.

   Thanks for the warning and good luck with the move. It can be
a bit of an ordeal with the computers and all, as I know what you
mean from experience.

Later, John...
