Not currently (pb18), I upgraded to pb19 when it was released but ran into
a couple of issues and had to revert back to pb18. I was planning on trying
pb19 again this weekend when I can afford some downtime since the work
week is over and having my systems up isn't so critical. I'd like to
secure my wireless end of things better also, WEP is better than nothing
but not much.

Besides that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?
