No. MUCH cooler. An old SuperMac running OS8. The thing smokes,
baby. :P

And thanks for the info. I can't use it through OSX, but I reboot to
9.2 and the applescript works fine. I am just working on getting the
Internet setup on my Newt. Connecting via appletalk and a Wavelan.
Newtscape can't connect yet. I'l find it though. It may just take me
several hours...

uh. well, back to newtontalk...

ah, the life of a newbie.
