Michael, I am actually using the new machine right now, with the updater
switched off. When this email came, I was just gonna go out and buy a
pack of blank CD/R-W's. But since you offer, a ready-burned copy would
be very nice.

As it happens, everything on this list gets crawled by Google, so I

right now. I think your email address is in these list messages, as in
fact is mine, but if not please email me off-list and tell me what it
