Hi Eric, I think you'll find evolt to be a friendly crowd, with a LOT of knowledge collectively (I'm fairly certain there are a few perl guru's out there, though I'm only learning myself). It's good to see more canadian's on the list... if you ever pop into ottawa, we should get together for a beer :). Oh. And posts not directly related to web design/development need a 'tip of the trade' to pay for their off-topicness, as it were (you'll likely grow to appreciate this feature, it keeps the quality level high around here ;). Cheers! ~pete <tip type="Seeing shares on Windows 9x"> This is an unlikely scenario... but hey, it happened to me and took a WHILE to figure out, so... If you have a LOT of shares on an NT box, or long descriptions, the full list can be too long to be displayed on a 9x machine... The number of shares that can be created on a Windows NT computer and displayed on a Windows 9x computer is related to the length of the share description by the following formula: 65,536 / (CommentLength + 21) = MaxNumberOfShares This is because the Application Programming Interface (API) that Windows 9x uses to get the share list from the NT computer is limited to a 64K buffer. If the number of shares exceeds this, some shares will not be listed. For example: 65,536 / (48 + 21) = 949.797 = 949 shares </tip> Irise Lenoir wrote: > Good day to you all ! > > My name is Eric (username IriseLenoir).
