89BonneSE89, I am awaiting some pics of the items. He said he wanted to get them cleaned up first. When we iron out the details will let you know.

I also found a link that may be helpful. Scroll down to item#55 and look on the right side of page.

Just got bored enough to actually read this thread and you know what? That is a, while really useful, potentially dangerous site!! God help the wannabe geek that goes in there playing with stuff the don't understand.

They'll probably call here and blame it on something we sold 'em.

I guess that is why the Disclaimer is in bold red.

Oh yeah, that'll work.

For example (actual customer e-mail here)

People don't read those, cause everything has a disclaimer, if it didn't companies get sued. Like the guy who sue'd the RV maker he bought from, cause he went to the back of it when he was driving and got in an accident....

But back to people not paying attention, a guy came thru the cuvlers drivethru at work, ordered a sandwich, we read it back, he says yeah that'* right, comes up. He comes back in the store, "This isn't what I ordered!" Mgr (who took the order) "Sir, we read every order back to ensure it'* right", then the guy says "Yeah, but who listens to that anyways" Our thoughts .. "People who get the right food?"

I run XP Pro and IE 6 (as well as 8 other machines on my network here), and do not have this problem. It is restricted some by ISP, but mostly the site you visit. On some sites, I could only do two, on others I could do five or six. It really is site dependent, maily. RAM, paging file, HD space doesn't have anything to do with that.

(BTW, I am an MCSE.)

Your welcome. Never thought about the site dependent thing but that would make sense. I just never have tried downloading more than two before.
