Hi Dale,

No problem on the delay.  Obex isn't crucial to anything I'm doing.  Would
be a 'nice to have' if it ever gets back to working status.  IIRC the
problem with that stone I'd mentioned was that I'd left a linked topaz
session logged in an it wasn't running the MFC properly/at all.  

So no rush on my end if it ever even happens at all.
