    You are getting somewhere. Is there a menu for transfer commands visible at the TNC? The options should be "read-in selected program", read-out selected program", read-out all programs", etc.

    Have to say that I've rarely seen proper subgrade prep for concrete, either. 1-1/2" crushed stone compacted with a plate compactor is about as good as it gets around here.
