HelixPlayer... that was intuitive. I don't guess it could have just been
named helix... oh Hell naww, it's too #%^$& important to be all lower

came up. There ought to be a law.

Thanx, Sis. You're on to it. It seems to grab things when I don't want
it to grab things. That's my beef. I am ignorant of the mechanism that
does this and would remove it if it became known. File Mangler is no
help at all. It has unresolvable file depends on totem-xine.

You must have missed the errata... when I originally copied and pasted I

that followed, which you may have deleted on the fly.
