We'll keep our fingers crossed that it's sorted out, Bob. I'm starting to feel like it could be my fault because I added so many names the other day before this happened but of course that's nonsense- isn't it?

Well, all those capital letters you put in obviously overloaded the computer, and it made them small, so it could cope.

Or not!  ;D

I merged markheal's topic with this, so it looks like Meles was a bit too fast with the praise.

I've corrected G (and I) by hand, but I still don't know why the crucial variable is sometimes upper-case (correct) and sometimes lower case (wrong).

Totally random, too ... tomorrow G will probably be OK but maybe another letter won't be  :'(  :-[  :o

Yes - there have been problems tht the moderators have been trying to fix. They've been working hard and I'm sure it'll be fine tomorrow.
