Re: Late to the party - this looks good

@Richard: oh, that makes more sense. @asqwerth: thanks. I did intend those 3 links to be a shortcut to avoid needing to go through one more page when the user already knew what s/he wanted to do. I won't change anything until the new site is finished, then we can look at the whole picture (including...

So my if_match just asked if there were any "BAT" in that location.
