I'll be go to hell, that's what happens. On Saturdays I do a lot of
Firefox; 
responding to about 20 Nigerian Brides so I can get more pics - 
checking out uTube for the latest Papadizzi - Save Papadizzi! -
checking out the personals to see just who I might have snagged with my
charm and wit -
back to uTube to see who else has gone insane - 
dnloads galore that I forget why I got them in the first place about 4
hours later - 
checking out all the URLs mentioned in posts to here - 

-by then named has given out. Some memory leakage of some sort in
Firefox? Is Nothing sacred? Ric
