   Thanks for setting me straight on this. I'll keep it in mind as I 
move forward.

   I don't doubt that you are right; many of the things I learned 
about the Macintosh are still valid today. However, I suspect that

as is the rest of the computer universe. Unfortunately, they are both 
moving a bit fast for my comfort.
