The MacOS one is just a bug in IE5, its the only one that causes it, the
rest of the programs don't, but its gotten consistant, I'm going to blank my
PRAM, see if that fixes it... and unless its heat damaging something, I
don't see any reason why stuff coulda gone bad...  But IE5 is the only
program that causes it under MacOS, but then, its consistant and generally
happens after a certain amount of time every time I try to run IE5.  Hrml...
I know this is off topic, but it might help in debugging the problem...
GaugePro doesn't say anything is wrong with my RAM.  I may play RAM roulette
later tonight and see if it starts working, but it happens consistantly, not
just every now and then, no matter how many RAM eating programs I've got
loaded... I'm really starting to get scared that this processor overheated
too... my room is very bad about that.  I recently sold a K6-3 because it
ran at unacceptable temperatures in my room, and I had it underclocked to
try and cool it down, the guy I sold it too accidentally overclocked it and
it ran a good 30F cooler than it did underclocked in this room.  ;_;
