Sorry - I keep forgetting to send to the list (now using Opera) :( I have 
to stop having such a very well-working forgetter (part of brain that 
forgets things) :)

My computer doesn't allow more than 256MB RAM. That's the maximum it can
use. It's 4 yrs. old and I got it free with one of those 3-yr. MSN
contracts (which I fullfilled). I'm on a very limited income due to
disability so there's no chance of getting another computer. I have to
make do with what I got. The machine always did wall, though, even on
very large photos which required a lot of correction of large areas. I'm
not worried about the hardware. It works fine for me. :)
