Thank you very much.

I was indeed wondering about my VenueServer. I run VenueServer from the
directory where .dat file is everytime, but I often have to reconfigure my
server all over again. I shut the server down just by closing the window,
but it seems that if I use VenueManagment to close the server than all my
virtual venues are intact. Is it really necessary to close it that way? I
saw in the archives this is was known as a problem last January, has
anyone fixed this. It can be frustrating setting up all the rooms each and
every time.
