Dear colleagues and list members,

Success! I have exatracted the files. I downloaded 7zip and although I had some problems (e.g. not realizing that you can right click on the file and tell it a lot of things to do , patiently watching 7zip extract the files but then not being able to locate them (how stupid does that make you feel?), finally finding the files and clicking on one but not being able to open it-still can't do that, maybe I'm not suppose to be able to do it). Just as a test, I selected some files from 7zip and ran them through Wordsmith and it made a wordlist (whew!)..

So a big thank you to Xiao Zhongua, Rob Raisch, Kolla Maeedhar (good to hear from you!), and Andy Roberts for all your promt and helpful suggestions and advice.

And very special thank you to Lou Burnard of BNC fame for taking the time to personally get back to me and reminding me that there is an 'install' file that does all the work for you.If I were in Houston where my BNC discs are, instead of Liverpool diligently?? working on my thesis I would have indeed noticed that (or perhaps not).

Best wishes (for this side of the pond) , ya'll take care (for the other side),
Linda Bawcom
