Hello?  Even the proxy coder said that there is *no* way to force the INI
reload with the NT *service*.  With the services there is no window to
MAKE active.  Ctrl-[whatever] works with the normal version, but not when
you run it as a service.

Actually, I think Ctrl-Break => SIGHUP = Reload ini, and Ctrl-ScrLk =>
SIGALRM = Connect to server.  Although, I could be insanely wrong, as I
have never tried.

Bah, why wait for windoze NT to support it when there are plenty of free,
stable, and *BETTER* OS's out there with full signal support already?  I'm
not trying to start a flame war on O/S's, but I just don't understand
people who insist on using Micro$oft O/S's even when they want all the
features from a *NIX operating system.. sheesh..

 --  If you want *NIX use *NIX!
