And it works! Thank you very much, Jason, and everyone that offered
assistance! I don't know why 'bin/expireall -r' didn't work, while
'bin/interchange' would run from cron. Now if I could only get rid of that
pesky server mail which is piling up every time cron runs 'bin/interchange'.
The -q switch at least suppresses catalog reconfig messages, but do they
need to be re-configured so often? I mean, what if someone had 20 cats
online and running bin/interchange from cron every 10 minutes (like myself)?
Of course, I want to know when the server went down and how often, but no
need to know that it is running. Perhaps there is yet a better way (or some
kind of /switch) to accomplish this in Interchange without filling the
mailbox? =)
I'll post to the 'wish list' if I don't hear from anybody.

Thanks again!
