OK now THAT is awesome ! Heh, it's neat to think that someone sat there 
one day and thought "Why the hell am I running scanner software that 
can't even be updated anymore? Hmm, BSD!" wow...

I'm still waiting on the NetBSD Oven, but hey lol. I'd much rather have 
FreeBSD on my oven, at least then I'd know it works better. ;)

Thank you for that, I'm reading up on it right now and showed my Wife 
who also thought it was cool. (She does in fact know Unix pretty well so 
She knows what BSD is).

Now that my installation of like 200 more tools for WindowMaker and 
themes for it is done, I can read it without a load average getting up 
there (This machine is super old, like 10 years almost... Still works 
good as long as I don't try to push my luck).

Anyway,thanks again :)
