Your right - flip mode is broke! Mr Owen and Co. seem to me ignoring
all messages at the moment, both emails to nova and posts to the
useless group get ignored. There hasn't been any response since 24th
December as far as I can tell?

This is good!!!  At least I know it is not me, and
I can leave what hair I have left on my head.  I
guess I will have to wait patiently, as Dr. Owen
does have a day job too.

My thanks to those who took the time to test your
own systems and confirm my findings.  I will
sleep well tonight.

Thanks Y'all.
