Awesome! I feel like applauding. Thank you BBQ. Most enlightening. It occurred to me that (even though highly unlikely) it might be a good idea to pad the sessionid with a couple extra digits (two should be almost too many) in case there is a collision (because the later one would just clobber the earlier and you'd never know). Thanks for a great explanation. TTFN.

    Give credit where credit is due. Turnstep gave me the tip on "$^T"$$" a while back. I'm glad you liked it anyway. Live and learn, I say!
