	Well, I've now moused around that site, reading everything that 
seemed even faintly hopeful. 

	I regret to say it was worse that I thought. The most I could do 
anywhere was to read the words -- without getting the faintest glimmer 
what they were about. The writer(s) could hardly take more savvy for 
granted -- savvy I don't have and probably will never even approach.

	It happens that I began life as a pure mathematician (BA 1961); 
and it was SOP among my contemporaries to skip courses -- you got the 
book on the material next in sequence after what you were taking, studied 
it on your own, and got the prof's permission to skip a prerequisite by 
showing him you already knew the stuff.

	Once I took a good look at a book two or three levels ahead; this 
was like that -- a sheer blank wall.

	Seems to me I better try "upgrading" F10 to itself; and if that 
doesn't do it, maybe yum will work in rescue ...
