THANKS VERY MUCH FOR ALL THE INPUT!
I never heard of Full Monty before!
I started synaptic downloading yesterday.
It's already copied 80+ of 800+ marked files.
It should be completed in somewhere between
4 and 49 days! All is not lost ... yet!
AT LEAST MY REPUTATION AS THE POSTER
BOY FOR CLUELESSNESS IS COMPLETELY SAFE!
Getting the sound on in videos turned out
to be a bit more than I bargained for!
My local computer store should be able
to download Full Monty for me. I'm their
only linux user, but they are very sharp!
The long-term solution has got to be a
cell-phone modem. I have a disability
interview this week! Pray for me!
THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP!
I'D REALLY BE LOST WITHOUT THIS F0RUM!
It's my only contact with something sensible!
