Ahh. I miss OS/2. Still have my OS/2 Warp 4 box and all. Can't get support
for my new machine. <sigh>

We used to joke that after microsoft released it's first
new version ( say Version X.Y.0), the first patch ( X.Y.1) would
cause it to not work with OS/2, and the second patch ( X.Y.2)
would start to fix their bugs.
