Awesome, thanks... I'd considered beebem the other day, but it looked very 
incomplete - but I think it was just that the sites I happened to look at were 
really out of date and gave the impression that beebem wasn't as finished & 
working as it is.

useful too, because I sat there for a few minutes before reading that, 
wondering how to load any files :-)

Sound seems OK here. I'd just been happily Reptonning - way smoother than the 
Flash version, and of course there's actually a menu now where I can enter 
screen passwords etc. (I bet I can still remember 'em all from years ago, too)

I do have WINE on here, but I haven't used it for ages. I've got a copy of 
win2k under vmware, too, but again I've not used that in yonks. It's probably 
gone mouldy by now ;)
