Of course, it is also a good learning experience when someone else breaks their system, and brings it to you to fix. Now days, you can also create a virtual system to play with when you want to break something, and be able to take you time fixing it without losing the use of the machine. It sure takes up less space then keeping a spare machine to do this with. Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
