Hi Andrew,

Heres the link if you can see (network and the crossing cards)
http://www.digital.com.np/cm/crossing.jpg

I will that and see what that means in the meantime. :)

Thanks,
Chandra

It would help to see the network. You can't attach files here - but
you can mail hscript...

If you open a textport and type:

opscript -r

(leave a space after -r) then drag and drop the node that contains the
entire network onto the textport, then hit return,  and you'll get all
the hscript needed to recreate the network. It might be easier to help
if we can see the network.

Cheers
