here's the skinny, the Finder is still far too slow... and i recommend you join the Xlist, there have been any number of illuminating emails delineating just why the Finder is sooooo slow... (and yes, i know very well that other processes in OS X run quite well, fast and all that... but what good is a Ferrari when switching gears takes ten seconds? that is to say that one still has to negotiate through the MacOS X GUI through the dog-slow Finder) of course, this will be discussed ad infinitum et ad nauseum... but do go here:<br>"For subscribing, unsubscribing or changing to a digest or individual version, visit<br> <br>and get on the Xlist"... heh heh<br><br>
