This is what you need to do: 1. add a 'room' concept for special interests (after hiring me to implement it). --the Radio Shack Computer Room --the COBOL GISTs Forum --the Reality TV Geeks in the Forest room. 2. The SlashStarter Room: it's like KickStarter, but is exclusively for /. salary (so that there will be some). 3. The What to Do If Trump Wins Room: Mom say I have to go to bed now, so I'll explain this during home room tomorrow.

Original posted solution sounded like a fun--if not optimal--solution. I remember an ancient Word Perfect on Windoze 3.1 being more productive than later word processors over more modern computers. Why? Software developers (I'm guilty of being one) have accelerated their gobbling of memory and processor cycles over the years so much that the poor HW folks can't keep up...despite the later's impressive results. The result: page downs are still painfully slow. But hey, I can format the document in Vulcan XML. Thanks.
