Also, flash doesnt run like crap anymore either. there are small interface changes that are welcome also..
lol - sorry for the rambling. its been a long morning.
EDIT - notice the new avatar Redeemed?
Homer? Is he supposed to be the president?
EDIT: NO! He's a priest!!! Is this supposed to imply something?
Not trying to be dense, but I am trying to not jump to conclusions.

I'm slowly building up an AXP 3200 based rig. Mostly going to use it to fiddle with Server 2008 (I have zero experience with the OS) and also as a dedicated Linux rig. Really looking forward to being able to dabble freely with Linux and not worrying about borking my main rig in any way, shape, or form.
