Hi, David,

If you're interested, I've reverted back to the older compiler version.

Read again the lines preceding your comment. It's not just about a delay loop.

My 'problem' triggered a discussion 37 posts long (so far). Of which mine were 
just 6 (including the one that triggered the discussion). So the fact that 'I 
wrote more email than code' is incorrect.

I may be stupid & stll 'learning' as compared to other older members(who I 
highly respect), but, I beleive I'm entitled to politely express my opinion.

It's true I had a different understanding of compiler working (which others 
have made efforts to correct).

Does this deserve a attack from you at a personal level?
