Yeah. Last time I drove using a mac laptop, I had to perch it on top of
a shoe just to get the air moving under it.

Yeah, don't think it hadn't passed my mind. The biggest problems with
Java was that my explicit requirements include "running on as gimpy
hardware as concievably possible". Plus I just like C :-D

Yep, 's what I do nowadays.

Sorry that this is being more effort than you'd anticipated, and taking
your time. You shoulda seen how it was a few versions ago. I'll always
be delighted that longfeltwant logged his 11k mile trip, but back then
there was an insane amount of manual work to be done to use it.
