Out of the Blue

My thanks to all those who offered suggestions on how to work out the Win2K crashing problem I mentioned yesterday. I think I managed to clear that up by removing some drivers that were causing a conflict, but since then I have been trapped in a different ring of computer hell, something has been causing crazy CPU usage that makes my machine unusable. After over 24 hours of mucking with this, I am even that much closer to my wits end than before, I should have just migrated everything to a different machine earlier, but this seemed like something where the solution was forever just around the corner. This is an old machine that's starting to display more and more flakiness (recalling the recent whining hard drive), and after years of flawless service, it may just need to be replaced. But I hate to admit defeat here, and I think I have the offending applications tracked down here, so I'm going to bang my head against the wall a bit more before completely giving up on this.

what the heck is up with the .plan files updates from Raven? This is the second time the whole company has plan files listed with zero content.
Their finger server ran out of disk space, which caused it to return empty .plan that were faithfully reported by Webdog. They fixed it yesterday, but the tracker didn't pick up the original .plan contents right away, so I just coerced it into doing as yet.
