Well sorry I can't help more I'm new with FuzzyOCR myself only been
using it for 2 weeks now, one week on a test machine and one in
production now.  Its been a wonderful tool.  Its been catching so much
I'd say 99% of that dang image SPAM.  Its far from perfect and I know
from the mailing list it will always need tweeked, but so far so good.
