Thks for the heads-up, Steve. This may sound heretical, but Mr. Gates
comes in and checks every day at 3 Ay-Emm to make sure I'm up to date
and patches me up if not. It's not a matter of choice with XP Pro -
the first time you fire up a new machine it checks in with the Head
Office and leaves its return address.
