    Sorry, but you'll have to count me out

    My home PC isn't on during the day, and if I did it at work, I'd get shot

    just run it in the background of your home pc when its on hammer, if you have at least 256 mb or ram then you wont notice a slow down at all, just remember to close it before playing any games

    Or leave the home PC on during day ...Why would you get shot at work? It just hovers in background helping the scietific community and mankinds .

    I used to run it on a 166, then a 550 256mb ram, now a 2.0 gig (P4) with gig of ram.

    >Why would you get shot at work?
    Well, there's a number of reasons.... I won't go into them all here though. The simplest rule for me to quote is that I'm not allowed to install software unless it's been company approved, and I'm authorised to use it yaddy yaddy blah blah <corporate site with no vision >

    Of course that's never stopped me before...
