sourceforge was listed somewhere as a mirror, so I went there. I usually
get good download speeds from their server.

I do have ApplixWare. However, ever since I upgraded my glibc, it simply
does a segfault. So I can't use it anymore. I'll probably be sticking with
OpenSource software to the best that I can any more!

Thanks a lot for the pointers. I'll sure give it a try. I sure wish that
some book company would do a professional printing on them. Even with my
