Hi once more :-) I'll shut up now: done reading. Please forgive my ignorance (I expect). BTW: if my remarks are completely out-of-line just say so: I won't comment again then. I am just trying to help people see HW restrictions and possible pitfalls if I think I can see them. What I don't know is if you need this or not, and if I just miss the point mostly/completely. Just set me straight :-): keeping informed from this list costs a lot of time I could be using coding on BeOS stuff (25% of my coding time currently) Best regards, Rudolf.
