Meanwhile, Firefox and I are having difficulties with clicking on links in frames. I can't click or control-click; it has to be right-click open in new tab. Obnoxious. It wouldn't be notable except that my webmail uses frames, and while normal operation is mostly OK, I have to use some of the problematical links for doing things with the bulk mail. Garrr.
A little later on, after I've decided that I can breathe again, I'll be calling a certain Darkside. He was sick last week, and sick last night when I called (I got his dad, which isn't much fun for either of us); here's hoping he'll be awake and coherent and willing to talk and there sometime today when I call.
