    I don't remember it either. A similar show - Maverick, had already started in 1957 and was very popular so it probably didn't do well. Also, there were lots of other popular shows like Bonanza,...

    It seems to me that using Segway type wheeled technology would be a good way to give robots greater mobility and speed. Walking up steps will be a problem until "legs" can be perfected. At least we...

    Thanks Wavy, you got me started down the right path but it kept starting out in E: drive. So I experimented a bit and finally came up with - %windir%\explorer.exe /e, C:, e\

    Thank you BruceR for that info. I use the latest version of Firefox almost exclusively and I thought that made it safer for me than using MSIE. It looks like nothing is completely safe anymore.
