cheers mates! :D

I'm really enjoying this revision of my machine. I'm not a super power user (more mild advanced) but I am content with this incarnation! Everything works well out of the box. I only had a few issues with the 'Upload manager' not conneting to my ancient ftp server but I switched to Filezilla and everything worked out perfect. The usb wireless card is faster than on windows; even with the proper drivers I could never get past 'G' speeds ( I never could figure it out.). Now it's utilizing the full 'A' band, both the router and the usb card are now at full speed. I love the look and feel, the options, just wonderful.

Thanks all!
p.s.
I don't anticipate needing help, but if I do, I'll be back to ask.
