Ahhh this is cool. I am on broadband so I can download
stupidly big files fine. :) As for the LISP book, I am
starting to think you are a complete nutjob. Surely
you should be reading the Linux Command Reference. ;)

I did see that earlier I htink. Is there a way to show
system info by the way? I want to check my clock speed
is what the guy advertised it as. About this Mac does
not show it unfortunatly - it just shows how much RAM
I have and my MacOSX version. I just went and checked
the version and it is 10.1.5.

Thanks for your info Chris. This is useful stuff. :)
