Thanks for clarifying the isolate and lock point question Monty.

Regarding the archives,  I could not find a search tool on the web page that 
would search the entire archive.  Currently, the archives are divided by 
month and to use a Windows search requires opening each month and repeating 
the search.  Is there a way to view all the contents of the archives at once 
, or could you implement a search tool that will parse the whole archive 
database?

Thanks,
ET.

Hello all,
    Could someone explain, in practical terms, the difference between the
Isolate Point and Lock Point functions and in what situations one might use
these functions?

Also, is there any way to search the entire mailing list archive ?

Thanks,
ET.

Hi Eric,

Isolate Checkpoint basically limits your surroundings in Navigation mode
to the nearest checkpoint.  That is to say, when you press the joystick it
will tell you where you are relative to the nearest checkpoint no matter
what direction you are facing.

Lock point does much the same thing but it doesn't have to be locked
on to your nearest checkpoint and you can still use the joystick to
conduct normal intarigations while in Navigation mode.

Isolate Checkpoint has been in Loadstone for a long time and Lock
point is relatively recent.

Since we added Lock Point I haven't touched the Isolate Checkpoint
function.

You can indeed search the list archives.  Just follow the link referenced
at the end of every message posted to the list.

HTH
