So those last two posts were posted on 12/07 at around 9:00 and 9:40 respectively. This is a result of my putting my laptop in sleep mode instead of shutting it down - seems that WinXP doesn't rely upon the BIOS clock, but instead keeps it's own, so when a memory dump is made and restored, the time is the same as when the laptop was made to hibernate. I didn't realize the time was off and forgot to resync it . . . sorry.
