That's why I never by lottery tickets. In over 2 decades working with PCs, the only time I saw a crash (not a toast!) was when I unplugged a keyboard from a PC-XT. The AT boards didn't do that anymore. And beleive me, I have done these swapings many,many,many,many, many times over, continued using the machine and NEVER smelled anything burning. But a new thing is a new thing and I am a fast learner, so, agreeing with Josh, I too suppose it could happen. -- //| //| // |// | // // | // // |||||||| ---------------------- [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.ipad.com.br (FreeBSD since 2.2.8 - 100% Rwindows-free) _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
