    Yeah, I feel blind without hyperterminal, but one doesn't actually
need it. When starting the 3700, I think most people start hyperterminal
first and then watch for the report that the 3700 is idle. Then it is safe
to bring up data collection. But when I first installed v 1.1 I didn't see
hyperterminal and assumed PE had deleted it. I was able to detect when the
3700 was idle by waiting for the green light to come on.
    The logging function must have been on by default. But there is one
problem--the size of the log files is substantial. What size files are you
set-up to handle getting through email at PE?
