Jim, I've once read in a computer magacine, that the bitsĀ“in the computer are used very often and are outworn after a certain time. They also had a program which loaded each memory bit and refreshed it. I think that was last year in april... Since that time I run that program from time to time and I have no more problem with that. You see it in the graphic of that program: the bit comes in with round edges and corners and come out like a perfect cuboid. Gerhard
