All of the controls are at RootsWeb and there is nothing more that I can do. I didn't receive anything from Yuki Charger to my mail box, so my guess is someone on the list got a virus and their address book got grabbed. It happened to Arv a couple of weeks ago, at least I'm assuming Arv wasn't sending me viruses' on purpose ;). By the way after 5 years as listowner I could be talked into passing it along to someone else. Any interest? Michael Whitney
