I would like you all to join my new MSN group, Ham Radio World.
This is free, and for anyone who is involved with ham radio.
George.

SORRY!  If it involves MSN, better to NOT get involved.

Too bad.  I, too, hate MicroShaft. (MicroSlash?  Microslop?  Microshock?  ...)
<soapbox on>
Since my first experience with them in Dec. 1979 they've given me no reason to like MS better, and many reasons to dislike them more.  Their poor quality software cost me an hour a day average for over a year in more than one case.  At one company I estimated *very* conservatively that 10,000 workers lost as much time as I did to the blue screen of death:  10,000 workers * 250 work days * 1 hour per day * $30 per hour = $75 million per year.  By comparison, using even "expensive" Sun systems costing 5 times as much per seat would have meant up front costs only 10,000 * $800 = $8 million higher - a lot less expensive than $75 million in grinding every-day losses and inefficiencies.  Why corporations don't understand what a huge loss MicroShaft places on them is beyond me.  I can only attribute it to MS's predatory marketing-monopolizing and skill at selling to the clueless who have no understanding of their true costs.  THIS is where government is supposed to protect us, too, but the conservative-stuffed courts failed to break up MS, again failing the electorate and enriching the already-filthy rich.  When did it become the ultimate mission of the Republican party to make the ultra-rich richer and the poor and middle classes poorer?)
And yes, I'd like some cheese to go with my whine.  <soapbox off>
