Thanks Andrei, I found it in the "help_web_devcomm.py" file. I now have
the Help option showing me the 'About - " screen and doing some
benchmark test -- ( I'll get there! ) I just need to go back there and
figure out why I'm not getting the "web links" to show, though I think
it may well be that I'm using a PIII with a C-Media 16MB card and not a
python script 'to-do'.
Big or small, a challenge requires the same commitment to resolve.
