my comment was directed more at (eg) not using FCL or LCL to avoid pulling in 
all their stuff that is not needed... currently the project's server binary is 
less than 500K... the next largest binary is ~700K... the server implements 5 or 
6 different protocols for connections... pretty sweet for such a small package 
compared to other things that do less but are much larger... oh yeah, this is 
completely non-GUI, too... all text/console mode  O:)

the real problem, which i was apparently not clear about, is that it is a screen 
shot... that's all fine and good but a simple text list is easier to 
copy'n'paste into a plain text message when conversing with others  ;)

yeah, that means i already have it... this is/was research before wasting the 
time downloading something that may not fit  B)

no, that's not possible :lol:
