In Romania it goes like this: school and high school (classes between 1-8 9-12): - 1 sept - 24 dec -> 3 weeks vacation. - 15 jan - XX apr -> 2-3 weeks vacation. - XX+14 apr - 15 june -> 2 and 1/2 months vacation faculty: - 1 oct - 24dec -> 2 weeks vacation. - 4-5 feb - 2X feb -> one week vacation. - 2X feb - 30(max) june -> 3 months vacation. >> He he, you know I want that too.

Of course. Otherwise we could not allocate(and manage) videoMem. We also need 32-bit HW mouse, and others that I cannot think of now. We should talk to Rudolf in this area. BTW, we should invite Rudolf on this list. Should I point him this list or you could add him? Then again, I have 3 email addresses of him... I think we should invite him. I'll do that now. Adi.
