I know, But it is just odd that the files will not open in Millions, 
this new blender build from 2.28 and 2.3 have started to work fine and 
happy for me in millions. I Tested the files in thousands and they are 
fine. But switching the screen res twice a day will start to take it's 
toll on the screen so I need Blender to keep working in Millions as it 
does now, and not suddenly have files that just like to crash and 
continue that trend.
