    I own a Chrysler. It's a 1990 LeBaron. It has a radio, AC, and the computer takes care of emission control related things. I don't think I have anything to worry about.

    Short answer - yes - if you have the proper "nag updates" installed, etc. But are you willing to take one of the first units off of the assembly line, with no spare tire, and no can of fix-a-flat? ...

    My TV remote eats batteries because my wife hits the MUTE BUTTON every time a commercial comes on. This is mainly due to the volume level of commercials being so loud.

    I agree 100%. Today's batteries only last a long time while they're on the store shelf (supposedly). At the price they want for them, this technology should have been built into them a decade or more...

    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,...

    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.
