thank you! will upgrade everything i can now, then when i prep 'bertha' ill
just do all the existing guests from scratch again.
i have no clue whether im using 1.11.13 or 1.12.0.. the base layout was
included in the stage 3 i got from hollow's site several weeks ago.
have no clue what the differences are.
