Ahh, OK, that'll do it too.  I've done that to myself by accident a couple
of
times lol

I add new areas at the end where possible.  I still use dynamic conference
numbers for non networked nets and use static numbers for the QWK networks.

You can set your QWK numbers to be static.  And don't use consecutive
numbers,
if you want to be able to insert conferences between them.

 ml> we probably should move this over to one of the sbbs areas, though...

Feel free to, I am linked up. :)
