Woot! PAN! Happy...I've got a killer newsreader finally! :)

Sometimes SGI, their politics, internal strife, and eagerness to squeeze blood out of end users annoys me...but I'll take this sort of end user support over the M$ stick any day! All going out and building freeware and useful toys for us... :)
