My carbon project for Compositor with 294 files used to take upwards of 2 minutes on my 603e 240 MHZ...1:46 or higher...1:30 non-carbon. Now..... 15 Seconds. :) Only 18 if a bunch of something else is running. Wahooo, I have a whole new hour a day to play. I deserve this more than any schmuck in history. wwwwwwhwhwhwhwhaaaaahhhaahoooooooooooo I win. Finally. Sort of. Something. Now to get the Compster to stop quitting. File error or null pointer something no doubt. Be mighty quick to debug now. Got Bryce 5 upgrade. Corel done good. Going to be cool. Got Photoshop 7 on the way. Going to be something. Gotta figure out that healing brush and stick it into the Compster. Got a lotta bills to pay. Where's Mean Petie. rc ps to Mean Petie: Pooey. ps2 Don't put a networked Jag G4 to sleep when you have it connected to an ethernet network. Wouldn't wake up all the way. I had to unplug it and reboot. Joke for the day: Q: Why do Unix machines get sick so much? A: They suffer from all manner of Terminal illness, and you can't Console them unless they give you permission.
