Gee, I don't have to program to crash twice daily, what does that 
make me unluckly?

By the way, file sharing is often a problem for me and I almost 
always run with virtual memory off (but one problem I discovered 
seemed less bad with VM on).

I figure the first series of PCI Macs had some bugs in their ROMS 
(that is what I have-9500 & 7600).  I know that the 9500's are a 
little messed up.

I guess I need to find a G3 used so I can run Excel 4.0 under MacOS 8.6
