Sure Bolkonskij, you and everyone else may always ask. :-)

Itís all a bit foggy tho, I think I fell into a trance and ranted on and on in my email. At one point I might have mentioned how awesome his http10proxy ( hack was.
Maybe also something about having screen time -canít recall. No that canít be it, Iím sure I must have made a typo, as I surely meant screen saver.

Ps. Jamie, if you happen to drop in. I do promise not to show any mail replies.
Done that one time only, to show my community I follow through -when I act.

When App Store came and I said that I newer use it, because if I cannot install offline it will be wasted money someday..but it will be interesting if it's not in this case.
But anyway Mac OS 9 does not have any this kind of problems. It has resurrected forever  ;)
