John, somebody has to tell the computer how to think in the first place, so
there has to be reasoning SOMEWHERE! :)

If you are getting involved in this thread, can you confirm whether it is
safe to delete something that Flash isn't telling you is unused (as I said
before, this used to be VERY DANGEROUS in early versions of Director on the
PC, score slots would keep references to non-existent cast members and this
could cause crashes)?

Maybe I've just been using MM products too long....I'm too paranoid.

Thanks for any more info,

It's just a computer... manipulates bits. It can't think very well.
