Gary, I have no idea what a Freedom Box is or what it does; tell me about it 
in a little bit more depth, or, write me off list, at  :  macatack5@xxxxxxx 
.

Thanks,

Hi Mack.  Good luck with that!  And from what I hear, Mike Calvo seems to be
doing a great job with his Freedom Box Network.  I wasn't to impressed with
the Freedombox when it came out, because as Jonathan stated on a Main Menu,
that it was more for a beginning computer user; but I've since heard a
review of Freedombox 2.0, that he did, and I am more impressed with it!  I
guess you can burn a Key to Freedom on a disk, if your a Freedombox user,
and then put the disk on another computer, and be able to use that computer.
Then after you remove the disk, no one is the wiser, because it doesn't
leave a trace on the other computer!
