Next version will have all the fnacy stuff enabled out of the box. It's just
not stable enough for a production-type environment, yet.

I appreciate that, Roy - due April, and for the dumbos like me, give it a
few weeks after release so that the gurus will have their answers ready for
me?:-)
I'm looking forward to it - sounds fantastic!

It would be really excellent to have a PPC nvidia 3D driver, so that my
elder lad's mac could share the 3D window manager fun, too. Anyone feel
like persuading nVidia to help?

I doubt it will be long Mark, the way things are going.

Did you see the announcement (by the FSF?) a few weeks ago, along the lines
of "If any of you H/W vendors will help us with the technical details of
the H/W we'll write your Linux drivers for free"?

And earlier today I read about a loud request for nVidia dumps, in order to
make further progress on the Open Source 3D driver. They already have the
3-D cogwheels working. Open Source!

You are obsessed with children and their *** ity, right?
Mark " *** " Kent?

Mark Kent: Are /you/ claiming to be the father of my children now?
LOL, you aren't sure, are you? Someone has been fooling around? Or has
your business done very well? LMAO.

Are you abusing them? Are you a bad dad? Did you expose them to such
activities?
Are you pimping for them? If you do, you might end up in jail. Are Roy
and William Poaster your customers?

You are a joke. Aren't you providing entertainment to the crowd here at
the expense of someone? And nobody even cares, does anyone?

You, Mark Kent, Simon Cooke, Gary Stewart? need to learn to control
yourself before someone has to do it for you.

Is Maverick your new customer? Are you a *** ? Maverick too? Oh oh.

The message is left so that as and when law enforcement agencies require
evidence, it will be readily available and easy to find.
