Which ghost would that be? Tfe ghost of Gene Roddenberry? :-)

At least the new limit on records will be a lifesaver for all the people who keep having to take their data sets and cut them into 64K-record chunks for their users. How many people have asked that on SAS-L just this year? Five?

With that, and new fonts, people will be producing new output which looks even *more* like blackmail notes. :-) :-)
