I think COMMON is an excellent ROI and not just something you send someone to keep them happy. Who would you send to COMMON from your company? Someone who will use the knowledge gleaned, or, someone who has every minute of every day planned out with travel brochures of Louisiana? If I get sent to a conference because of a good ROI then I like COMMON, IBM tech conferences, and others. And I will appreciate it. If my company just wants to send me someplace to keep me happy then I'd prefer a hunting or fishing trip to some exotic location. Rob Berendt ================== Remember the Cole!
