    That's what I was thinking, and with XP/Win7 irradiation exposure -- it
    would be impossible!

    I hear you.
    Can't disagree with you about dealing with cable companies either.....I
    had high hopes for ClearWire when they came to my area, but they were
    just not reliable here, so most of us ended up back on cable of Internet
    access. I'm glad for you that your area has better service. I meant
    ClearWire, not Clear...which I've never seen.

    No need to explain or defend any sarcastic style....I was doing the same
    thing, especially with the Elitists response to your Luddites. We're
    all just having a little fun....at least till the flamers and biters
    come back out.

    Cheers!

    A couple of alternatives:

    <Prcview: http://www.teamcti.com/pview/prcview.htm>

    Wintop, part of the Microsoft Kernel Toys for
    win95 and win98; some download locations with information
    about the program:

    Good ones.
    Wintop totally slipped my mind. I've used it since the Win95 KernelToys
    came out, on Win9x systems.
