I have no way of knowing when a command is complete, so I give it a second
or two before I decide to refresh the screen. If it *seems* incomplete the
response, then just click on the ENTER key again (leaving the command fld
blank). That's the same as a REFRESH. Click ENTER as many times as you 
want if you think the NOS system is still processing a command.

Also, the prototype is just that - a prototype, needs works, etc.

After you login, don't expect a command prompt. Sorry, I should have been
clear about that from the start. Also, MAKE SURE you use the 'bye' command
when you are done, that way the mailbox is properly terminated.

At present, if you terminate your web client, and the mailbox is still
running, NOS may try to run a second instance, then things get wierd.

So far, I've collected alot of data and thoughts. Thanks again to all.

Will have something *better* down the road, a few weeks.
