Mine looked unusably fuzzy when first turned on. I sighed and left it on, and it has “cleaned up” remarkably. I’m somewhat curious what causes that. Warble wasn’t much of a problem, but it seems pretty solid now.

You know about the Lighthouse Design suite of applications, right? Presentation, spreadsheet, word processor, drawing program, etc.

Don’t forget the license strings.

I’m also very partial to WriteNow, if you are able to find a copy of it. 

Licensing will be a *real* issue, but a version of Mathematica 3 will also run on that system. No idea where you could possibly find a copy of that, but it’s pretty cool and remarkably capable.

That is good to know. I mucked around a long time before I finally  .rtfd’d ( :-) ) and may have left something in a non-standard state.

I can ftp, telnet, ssh, etc to the machine and from it using IP addresses; I have not tried using machine names. I can surf using Omniweb when I have something else to do while it loads, and routinely hit the Dilbert Zone, websites, etc.. The distributed net client successfully gets new work units, except that when I ssh (as opposed to telnet, which works) into the machine and request an update,  it sometimes “goes wild” and tries to download a near-infinite (until I open another terminal session and kill the distributed net job) number of work units.

Should I try to fix that broadcast address? Or maybe, ask my IT guys whether it should be that way?
