[wxsig] A little more help - or - pointer needed

Boy, don't I wish that was the case, John. Remember, I built my system on 
the very first release. TI did not include such a thing at that time. I 
looked at maxim - ordering on their site is a royal PITA. I'm going to look 
at AAG now.

For Ron H(to avoide generating another email) - Having been doing computers 
since the first 6800s, I thought I knew a bit but you hit me with something 
I've never seen. What the heck is a "rar" file (xxxx.rar)?

John, if you feel like it, sending me the win32 stuff would be greatly 

Thanks to all.
