    Command Workstation 6

    did this about a month ago....not a fan of the new side interface (actually takes up MORE display area_)....and the fact that it's harder to find jobs (unless you make a custom ALL filter).

    Anyone knows what does meaning "ml"

    Are you sure that 'micro' is what you are looking for? The '#' character synonymous with 'pound' or 'lb' - i.e. 80# Text or 80 lb Text is 'eighty pound text' - as a measure of paper weight...

    Rampage client issue.

When you say 'new apple server'....what OS NOW, (and what did you have before?) - the whole smb: vs...
