Frank, I'm curious -- how do you know when a video has had 10 circulations and
is due to be cleaned? We used to do it @ every 25 times before we automated
--when we had to put in a new date due slip we knew we'd reached about 25
circs. But we haven't come up with an easy marker method since we've been on
Dynix.
