THANK YOU!  This is exactly the solution I was looking for.


IBM i on Power Systems: For when you can't afford to be out of business!

I'm riding 100 miles (a full century) in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure to raise money for diabetes research, education, advocacy, and awareness.  You can make a tax deductible donation to my ride by visiting http://emailsig.diabetessucks.net.  My goal is $6000 but any amount is appreciated.
