I was running Tardis 2000 on my servers (good for syncing system clock) and it locked up on a corrupted time server causing the system clock to stay at 14:23 for a few hours. The GUID is supposed to be globally unique even between machines, and you are right there is a dearth of information about this function duplicating itself. --- Anthony Baratta President Keyboard Jockeys "Conformity is the refuge of the unimaginative."
