Word dat last point, it is one of the reasons I have flash installed & 
maintained through ports, the *only* such pkg on my box, although some 
other sites require it as well (Ameritrade, NOAA, & a few others). If 
those folk would just find an alternative (*surely* there are 
alternatives), I would be 100% pkg for my package maintenance, which I 
would be well pleased with.
