Wow, I really fell sorry for all the people who have responded to this so far
(at the least the ones that I have seen). Here I use a Macintosh IIsi, with 18
Meg Ram, 80 Meg hard drive and space on 4 servers for extra capacity. If I have

any more than Quickmail, CC Mail, Microsoft Word, Excel, Power Point, TeachText,

Superpaint, MacDraw Pro, and Page Maker open I might have to close 1 of 32 open
windows to print. Even then it might ask me if I want to print and do nothing
else while it is doing so. The only reason I would have to close anything is to

have backgroud printing.

My screen is only a 14" but hopefully to be upgraded someday. There has been
talk of upgrading to PowerMacs but I won't hold my breath.

To all of you DOS folx, maybe its time to look to a real computer, a Macintosh
;-).

Your's computingly,
