Hey guys,

Thanks Jamey for clarifying quite a bit :)

For now what I've done is get the code to "build" for win32....not running 
perfectly yet. Am trying to deduce if the failure is at the 
threading/synchronization mechanism as we've been speaking here. Once I reach 
that point I'll take a call as to whether to rewrite or the next 
steps :)....will keep u posted.

I concur completely....I too am a linux guy but grave misfortune has fallen me 
and I have to walk the road of the dark ;)

Bye for now
