Hey, Mike. Back from Disney World, and had a chance to rework the 
script. I've got a working version of it, barely tested with two 
lineups. Unfortunately, I'm not known for my clean coding style, but if 
you'd like to take a look I'd be happy to pass it along. Can I attach 
files on this mailing list (sorry for the total newbie questions!)? Or 
what's the best way to get it across at this point?
