        Weird.  Pseudojack isn't showing up in the list of known drivers.

        Seems to be better so far.  I've been running it for a few 
minutes and it hasn't locked up yet.  I've even been able to run it 
with MacStumbler and iStumbler probing on the other card, and it's 
continued to work.

        Can I make a few non-code related requests?

        First, can we get different version numbers when you release 
something to us?  It's confusing to me to have multiple copies of 
0.05f (or whatever) lying around, when I can't be sure which version 
truly is which.

        Second, can we get the version number incorporated into the filename?

        Thirdly, can we get everything put in it's own subfolder?

        This way I can easily keep multiple copies of KisMac around, and 
drop back to older versions in case newer ones are flaky (as happened 
with the early 0.05 line).  This also means I don't have to keep 
creating subfolders myself, or re-naming the application every time I 
download the latest.

        I kind of like the preference icons.  What don't you like?
