I answered “no” to the update directory to R6 question when R6 server first started (should have answered yes.) So I followed the manual instructions (which can be done before upgrading server… but I did it after). With server down, I replaced the design with the new pubnames.ntf.

where the -u switch upgrades folders

I really like Randy Newman’s musical, Faust. It sounds like a great show. Not sure I’ll ever get a chance to see it performed.
Looking for lyrics, I ran into this plot summary.
I don’t know who typed it or where it came from, but it Turns out these are the liner notes, which sure help fill in some gaps. Makes me want to read the original.
