Re: [guide-user] Re: new issue with comet update

This method that Bill describes is quick and easy....and fool-proof. Just make sure
to RE-NAME the file as 'soft02cm.txt'; I typically just save the file to Guide and
over-write the existing 'soft02cm.txt' file so that the computer forces me to KNOW
that I am writing the correct file ("Are you sure that you want to replace.....")
