    Once I finish my degree I'm sure I'll get a laptop. It would be really nice to just get up and go wherever to work.

    >do you have those set up to multiprocess?<

    I can do a little, like running winzip on a
    remote computer, if that's what you're
    talking about. But all four computers are in the
    same room, so it's not really necessary. I
    don't have any set up as a server, although I
    could if I wanted to, but I think I'd opt for
    one of mfc's dual machines before I did. Also,
    I don't trust WinME to run correctly from a
    remote CPU. Also, I have too mant flaky programs
    that won't run on an NT platform. As long as all
    my Internet and intranet connections work ok, I'm
    happy.

    If you hate me because I have 5 Internet connections
    for the price of one $30 account, can't say that I
    blame you if you're still stuck in modem modem land
    .
