AHHHH... that's what i overlooked... you still have 599 blocks in the
inbuffer that you want to hand out... sorry... i just had abdominal
surgery and the meds i'm taking do get in my way at times %-)

yep! i wonder, though... i'll have to check this on my perproxy here...
i just hate to shutdown my router to terminate the internet
