After the technology rant and I was unable to post here from my Mac, I couldn't send e-mails when ATT/DSL "decided" over night to "upgrade" its home page. Spent 1-1/2 hours with tech support; the last utterance of the techie was "Firefox." Great, I thought, that should be a nightmare. Meanwhile I made an appointment to have my OS upgraded, G3 fixed, and data transferred. In a moment of bravery, I downloaded Firefox. Problem solved instantly, miraculously. Transfer of everything seamlessly. Canceled appointment. Saved money.
And I can post here.
