Sigh. I went against the old adage about not fixing something that was not
broken yesterday, and tried to uninstall one of the multiple versions of Java
installed on my computer and, naturally enough, broke something really badly.
Now the odd behavior I am not able to shake is a memory leak with FrontPage
(which I have used for years as an easy HTML editor). It's a little spooky...
even saving a blank page immediately triggers the leak, which continues straight
on until the system crashes. Sorry about the late update and over-aged news.
This has been a real nightmare, I've transferred everything to a different
machine now, and I'm really beginning to suspect my aging hardware may just need
to be put out to pasture at this point (hey, this may be turn into a sponsorship
opportunity for some hardware type!).
