Not yet, Firewing.
Thanks for the suggestion!
But that cricket in the corner, among other reasons, inclined me to move the Mac off my desk, and give it to a Mac lover today. I opted for a nasty old dog of an 800Mhz P3 instead. At least it will run PCLOS, or elive.
I've tried to give the Mac a fair shake. Really, I have. But it just isn't the machine for me. The whole time I was using it, I felt very limited -- kinda locked in. And it just didn't set right with me to click that nasty blue "e" to get on the web. And whoever came up with that bloody hockey puck of a mouse should hide their head!
So, I guess we could call this one resolved. Thanks again for the input, guys.
