ahhh.  ok.   i guess i see pros and cons.  it's awfully nice to be able
to change the associations without having to hack at an XML file.

OTOH, it's awfully nice not having to go through a bazillion file types
looking for the string ".wav" if i want to change the filetype.

ya.  i just found that a couple of hours ago.  i was playing around with
.rm, .ra, .ram, .rv files.  found a page that kept popping up annoying
webhosting pages.

it made surfing my \/\/arez and pr0n sites MUCH nicer...

oh, cool.   i was looking for that.  :)

i think i may just bounce between the two browsers.  hopefully either
opera will fix its print system or mozilla will get its speed up.   one
of those options is bound to happen sooner or later!
