Good heavens, Rick, my husband certainly has many similarities with John Henninger Reagan! They were born in locations an hour's drive apart; the both were surveyors; the both were tutors; and they both had a knack for business! Thanks for a great link! :)

It's a bit of a shame that most of your questions have to do with the American Civil War. May I humbly suggest you broaden the scope in the future?

Here's a "what if" that's kinda intriguing: What if John Brown had joined the Army, rather than fomenting slave rebellions and so forth?

Dixi and I just hate Windows for many of the same reasons that you've cited, e.g., sporadic connectivity, pointless and stupid "help" routines, etc.

Will Linux run Windows games on a PC?
