If you say forum, I have to presume you mean a web interface
rather than one for a newsreader. Incomparably worse, imnsho -- I do
frequent a few such, but wouldn't if I could get them on a newsreader; I
hate mousing all over everywhere, and the web is desperately slow, at
least on my browsers.
But in any case, I'm just about convinced that there is still no
way I can run my topo software under wine and make it do what I need it
to. Not yet.
Maybe the Alpha Plus Technoids can, and if so it's major
progress, which I'm glad to salute; but for so subtechnoid a user as
myself, ... <shrug>
Thanks nevertheless for all the help; my gratitude is no less for
not having succeeded. I'll try again in another year or three; or maybe
CXO will work this time ...
