We're Still Heeeeeeerrrrrrrreeeee!

I'm not even going to name that whacked-out person who predicted that today was the beginning of the end of the world.  Those immortal words of Willy Wonka come to mind here: "Wrong, sir!  Wrong!"  Why did that nut job believe he was different from every other would-be prophet?  Oh well, doesn't matter.
Meanwhile, in the SPOCS world (which has no crazy people predicting doomsday.  Crazy people - maybe),  we are still marching toward getting SPOCS 2.0 on the air.  We're still working on the system tag section of shared memory.  The tags themselves are in, they are being initialized by the scanner, then when the scanner has finished starting up, the system tags are updated by the scanner periodically.  The current problem is the tag search routine.  It searches for tags by name, and returns the tag type and current value, if found.  Right now, when searching for system tags, it very consistently returns the code -1 ("not found").  Even though a debug trace shows the routine is, in fact, finding the tags' name in the system tag table.  Oh well, onward...even if it takes us 'till doomsday...
