I'll see if I can get them to do this, but I was actually hoping someone 
here could try it for me and report back.  Sadly, I now appear to be the 
only one having this problem.

Seems pretty slow to me, too.

Probably not an option.  I can't imagine I could get them to replace a 
Python DLL and then restore the original later. 

I once lost FTP access to my site and it took them a month to restore it.  
Also, I've downloaded the FrontPage 2K Server Extensions to my FTP 
directory for them to install and I've been waiting now for two weeks....

I understand, Mark.  No need, anyway, methinks.  We should be able to 
figger this out.  Thanks for thinking about it, though.
