Wow. I started something here.

I just now got back on-line after having to spend three days backing up 
my Windoze 2000 computer (which handles and archives my incoming emails) 
so I could install Windoze XP -which is required to run one of my new 
debugger pods. It's sorta working.

It's going to take me a while to absorb this thread. Looks like I've got 
some reading to do!
