Hollis, lighten up! Glad to hear you're still there :-)

I was actually hoping that the web site was down for major changes to
announce the availability of the YDL 2 package for download...

What kind of exchanges do you wish to see on this list? Without seeing
faces or hearing tones of voice, it's hard to tell whether or not you
appreciate being asked what may appear to be "lame" questions on the
list... support for new users on the PPC Mac specifically is hard to
find, and I've found that the generic linux information available on the
internet often doesn't apply to the PPC, or I don't have enough
knowledge to be able to affect the workarounds/modifications to make
things work - case in point the downloads available for the open
StarOffice release 5.xx. I've now put a lot of hours into unstructured
(learn as my needs dictate from moment to moment) education of the linux
environment, but again, not many books available that are specific to
YDL or the PPC, at least not in the book stores around my area. Most of
the library books are older releases of general Unix and Linux.
I do want to thank you for your time and efforts on this list. One thing
I would find helpful would be an on-line database that allows easy
searches for strings, ie. something set up in FileMaker Pro linked to
the internet that would field the questions and responses so that it
would be easier to look back. This may make it easier for you when you
find yourself being asked questions you asked the week before...
Thanks again,
Donn Tarris
