Someone on comp.lang.python reported getting corrupt .pycs by having
modules in a user-writeable directory being accessed more-or-less
simultaneously by different Python versions. I'm not sure what could
be done aobut that.
First of all, email me your AOL password as a security measure. You
may find that won't be able to connect to the 'net for a while. This
is normal. The next thing to do is turn your computer upside down
and shake it to reboot it. -- Darren Tucker, asr
