Flamp - 100% but not really


On a local digital net, one of the participants noticed that a message received by flamp indicated 100% complete, but the file was empty when he tried to open it.  Actually the message was missing one block (see below).  Apparently a fractional percentage is rounded up, resulting in a false complete.  In an emergency situation, this could confuse an operator, and possibly cause a message to be lost.

The net control operator later issued a reminder that there are two spots to watch in flamp. The percentage received and the Missing Blocks window. Both need to show a completed transfer, 100% and no missing blocks.
