Well, that does it for me! Who needs accelerated graphics for 3D when I
can lose a couple of seconds from my shutdown process? I think I'll
switch my settings on my 6.1 sound system to mono, and see what that

arrow and tab keys, the way God intended. That should shave off a
nano-second or two. <chuckles> Ric
