    Ever put a dirty CD into the drive on ME? System crash. Real glad they fixed that in modern Windows, that's for sure.

    I have a neighbor who is still running ME - no way to get him off from it. He says it does what he wants to do. That is an acceptable answer - I think.

    whs, I'm glad you appreciate my sense of humor. I'm a military buff, and years ago, I told a joke on a U-boat forum. By the time those Germans got through with me, you'd have thought I sank the Bismarck.
