Gee, I'd been up for 1.5 weeks until my modem locked up today (I
picked up the phone while it was dialing and it never let go of the
line). Just giving you a hard time. I have a simple solution that I
used to use when I ran Windows. Reboot every day, whether you think
you need it or not, it'll save you that lockup/reboot at the inopertune
time (like in the middle of a time save of your term paper -
trust me that sucks, because it corrupts your file. <MS Word has cause
a GPF in module SUX2BU.EXE>).
