Paint is much more fun, and fits every keyboard.

Scary, but marketable.  I've known several families that would
definitely benefit from having the die-hard mudder(s) in the house off
the real computers for a while.  Then the pc's can be used for
"serious" applications, like Starcraft.

Are you fishing for sympathy?


A month and a half ago I asked for suggestions for improving the ascii
pfiles patch[1] and didn't get any responses.  I'd like to reiterate
that request.  I never realized what an awful patch it was until I
decided to try hand-patching it.  In over two years nobody mentioned
it.  Go figure.  I'm trying to make it as easy as possible to install
and use, so you guys don't have to spend so much time supporting it ;)
