Well, I work for the "mainstream Media", and things like this don't
interest them. Unless, as I mused in the other thread, it is a delay
tactic brought about by tne MS-Novell deal. I'll ask DigitalRiver if
they have shipped ANY to the US, and resume the other thread.

I built a Christmas gift with 9.3, so while this irritates me, it isn't
a show stopper!

Sorry if we diverted this thread any...
