No, I kept thinking it was all a mistake and that it would be fixed... 
OK, I tend to stay in bad relationships longer than I should. Guilty. 
Ergo, I have wised up finally and now am happy with a desktop that just 
wants to be a desktop, not my way of life. It's not easy tossing 13-14 
years of use out the door. That old babe was just to much high 
maintenance and I'm just a simple country boy. Being slow doesn't make 
me stupid. :) Ric

..the Sin of Ignorance, and the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
