    It would appear that Henrick has hijacked the original thread which was started to ask about "Extra symbols after "Labels:" " with an explanation as to why registering an interface is not a good idea for himself. Nothing to do with the original poster or his question.

    I guess it's enough to verify I have ligitimate thing; really can't understand insisiting on registering/verifying.

    Appologies for thread hijack, will not post off-topic anymore. Sorry about that.

    PS: my Labels/User folder contains over 180 self translated/corrected/improved labels. Dropped a line to Support some years back with an offer to include then in the release but got only a response to register. Well, to me it's fine if they reside under /User

    I have been thinking for some time that the ability to register an interface needs a cut-off date. With our current interfaces, registering in a timely manner is mandatory and enforced by the software. But with the old ones, perhaps 5 years would be appropriate.

    In such a case, we would have no problem having both names in the record for that system.

    Form the fact that your status here was "Unverified" rather than "New User". But I have changed this now.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    It tells is where there's coding information for that module. In the label file, in the ROD file, or in both.
