Done, this does make so much more sense with a mail list, still trying to
adjust to a mail list rather than a forum, of which I am more use to.

Deleted the directory and then uploaded a fresh 3.2 dev from your link to
the email list today, all worked great.

Was not aware this was possible, so until a release comes out, I will keep
the one I got from the list today titled event-calendar-dev-122908 and if I
try a new dev version, will name it similarly and with a release finally
move to the release. Great idea, makes it all easier to track what I am
doing. Thanks for pointing this out.

Was not necessary following your advice above.

Again not necessary following your advice. I have a much better grasp on
how I should would with the list and with the dev versions, I should not be
so hard to deal with in the future, :)
