end up searching for something totally unrelated to what I originally logged on
to for), there are some pretty useful and well designed sites. Just now

work or even link to anywhere. To tell you the truth, I'm really only
stumbling my way through this program by bashing the keys in every kind of
random order and hoping for the best, am I really expected to know what and how
everything works, I don't think so).
