Now there's one of the best arguments yet that I've
seen for putting everyone all in the same bin.

Yes, that much I've grasped. <smile>

That was a consideration with my old set up (in
computer terms, it was ready for Antiques Roadshow!)
But with the new computer that I bought (as
components) and my husband put together for me, I
can probably handle a very huge project. TMG is one
of the reasons I put a 160 gigabyte hard drive, 1
gigabyte of RAM, and 1800 MHz AMD Sempron chip,
and what I call a "muscular" motherboard on this thing!
<grin> (The other reason is games!)
Thanks for the discussion. Much appreciated!
