I want one of those...hahaha...someone who would listen long enough for
me to settle on an answer on my own?  God, you're a lucky person.  If I
so much as shape my mouth like the word "computer" is going to come out,
my wife runs for cover...my friends do their best, but most of them
aren't great listeners so we end up getting off topic and never do find
a solution.  My daughter listens, but I have to wait for her to start
pre-school for hope of any real response.  Consider yourself quite
lucky, Kent.
