Ron, I totally agree-- It's funny how I work in a company full of computers all with internet access....Nobody thinks of using the net to find information.
People will come up and ask me: How do I convert Roman Numerals into Normal Digits?
So, I went to Mamma.com , typed in "Roman Numeral Converter" and found a dozen links to applets that do those conversions as easy as pie.
The person was amazed...and like "Errrr, why didn't I think of that?...."
I'm so used to checking the web first, it's a habit now.
Infoseek (gone downhill)
Dogpile (ok... not great)
Exite (not so hot)
Sherlock (apple specific)
Those are my most frequently used engines--- Hope it helps others locate info in the future...!
