I *DID* look at the config file, and I knew when I looked, it had 
changed.  When I stated it was a default install, I meant there was no 
logging box involved.  If you insist on continuing on with this dialog 
because I didn't do as you stated, then take it offline.  Nobody wants 
to hear two grown men bitch at each other.  As far as I'm concerned, 
this discussion is over.  I made the mistake, and I admitted it.  What 
more do you want? A confession?
