I don't think I am detecting any problems with any other files.
I've just come back in and tried a few things. All else looks ok.
Other file saves are fine. 
All other files seem to execute through the network when I run them off the
PC when running the SDR PC on GUI Win95.

At this point I just don't think I am detecting any problems with any 
other files.

It seems that I can do everything file-wise with this WIN95 (the SDR OS)
and then be able to work with them on either the other network WIN95 or
WINNT PC. Floppy transfer or via network.
And the clock does appear ok.

I also have a WIN3.11 PC on the network, but it doesn't have any Winqake
or SDR software on it, so I haven't tried it with these files. thinking is that the problem may be with the way SDR is saving the
only and the way it is being read by Winquake.  

With the comma, one of the first things I considered was some sort of virus.
Maybe changing the way Winquake viewed these files with some sort of extra
data inserted by a virus. But Norton Anti Virus comes up clean
with yesterdays updates.

I have in my mind that we may not be alone on this, and bet as soon as
Larry comes alive from last night he may be able to point us to a fix. 
Here's hoping anyway. I'm really thinking that for some reason SDR is writing
it's file in a way that Winquake interpets it wrong. (sounds like a virus
doesn't it)
Like adding a string to the file! 

I've pumped in some breakfast and buckets of coffee so now I've got to go
help a guy install a DSS dish. Will keep my fingers crossed for that easy
fix! Bet I sleep like a baby tonight! A bit sleep deprived.

If anyone has Winquake functioning, I'd like to send them my file to
see if they can read it. I did considered just sending it to PSN but maybe
a bit dangerous to see if it would convert there ok to html. Better to test

Happy New Year all.
