Therein lies the hazard in quoting an email rather than copying the actual goods:

fileName = @"Colours"

is the line in the thingumy I ran here. "Colours" is a plain text file from TextWrangler; is that a prob? Is it looking for an extension, or the absence of one?

Showoff. 

We were exhorted, upon its initial publication and under pain of dire recrimination, not to use it for nefarious purposes like solving crossword puzzles, and I haven't not used it for that nefarious purpose for some time. But I might start to not use it again if it came to life.
