I just noticed your John 3:16.  I love GOD too.  In fact the only 
windows program I use in Wine is e-Sword.  It is a wonderful Bible 
program.  I am sorry you misunderstood me on that other issue.  It is 
OK, just the world in action.  It seems like the update may have come 
just after my post.  I probably should have waited a day or two, before 
posting to now waste anyone's time.  Sometimes I don't think well.  
Anyway the update fixed several problems I was experiencing, none too 
serious.  If you are not using Jaunty yet, the Alpha version is less 
problematic that Hardy or Intrepid.  It is amazing.  When I clicked on 
Hardware and chose the nVidia upgrade to 180.37, the video portion of my 
computer is just plain incredible.  The 3D effects are amazing.  Images 
look truly 3 dimentional.  And color quality and crispness is great.

Additionally, I could not get Kmail to install on Intrepid, with or 
without help and eventually relented to Thunderbird.  When I tried 
install in Jaunty, I entered POP and SMTP address and that was about 
all.  Took perhaps 15 seconds to do, and it work instantly.  Jaunty is 
amazing, and a real alternative to Windows.  The fact that it is better 
and free will probably take like wild-fire, especially in these tough 
economic times.  Thanks!!

Cheers to the One Who paid for us all,
