Thanks for your question Jerry. I should've posted something earlier to let everyone know.

As an aside, I've been playing with Ubuntu/Linux operating system to try and avoid virus crashes as there are very very very few Linux viruses out there. The cool thing is, if you have enough memory on your hard drive, you can set it up so both Linux and Windows are on your computer and you can choose which one you want to run when you boot. It's very user friendly, stable and FAST! The only problem is that it won't run Window's specific programs (like Gecko charts) and you have to transfer all your Window files over to Ubuntu if you want to use them there (ie. photos, music, ebooks, etc)

I know there are ways around the programming issue (I think the crossover program is called WINE) and there are ways to transfer the files from within Ubuntu from Windows, but I'm still a Linux newbie and haven't figured it all out yet.

If there are any Linux trading geeks lurking about maybe you can give me a hint?

Having said all that I can't wait for Chartsky to come back either!
