I thought I was the only one with too much time on his hands. Wow! Some
actual stats. Smile

That's what I thought as well.

Yeah, you're correct. (Aren't they Mark's nodes as well? Going on memory
here.Wink In my case I'll redo the pointlist entry, and discard the override in
Radius. ;-) Since most of my out-of-zone calls are to Zone 2 systems then no
other changes are required.

SL> Yes. Oopsie ;)

[Mmm... 2004... smirk] Who do I see to get this done? Michiel?
