    True, I do.
    But never when someone hijacks one of my tag-liners, merrily sailing across the Atlactic.

    Hey Skitter

    Seems like a good opportunity to discuss the attributes of OS X. I'm finally going to update to 10.5, have you done so yet? The new iLive09 applications need Leopard so I suppose it's time.

    In the next year or so I might even upgrade to a new Mac, which I understand can even dual-boot into that Microsofty Windoze thingy. <img src=/S/yawn.gif border=0 alt=yawn width=15 height=15>

    Ooops Sorry John <img src=/S/pirate.gif border=0 alt=pirate width=22 height=18> <img src=/S/jollyroger.gif border=0 alt=jollyroger width=29 height=18>

    Are you a TechNet subscriber? That page comes up pretty empty for me!

    I would edit your link to make it clickable but if it doesn't yield anything, it's non-productive.

    Re: Windows 7 public beta released

    OK, so I've edited the link so it IS hot, in case anyone wants to jump on it. Admitting that you're correct, I'll keep hitting the refresh key every once in awhile to see what happens. As an aside, I did read some comments on one of the sites I've been visiting that said MS wanted to make sure the West Coast folks didn't get bypassed and that's why the "afternoon" thing. But I would have thought something would be up by now. Well, we'll have to see.

    When Vista was at this stage, I passed it up until the very LAST release candidate and I wanted to change course on Windows 7, but even though it sounds like a BIG number, 2.5 million downloads will go pretty quickly I'd bet...

    >I gave the duel boot thingie a try

    duel? <img src=/S/gent.gif border=0 alt=gent width=17 height=25> How appropriate in a discussion of Microsoft vs. Users.

    (P.S. Might this be the first doubly-hijacked thread?)
