Ah, I see.

OK, I'll change the link and adjust the text.

Well, no - you're down to 35% now :-)  Hey, could someone persuade the website 
guys to add another line of code to do the totals on that table?  I keep 
having to use my calculator, and I'm wasting 36 seconds of my life every time 
I do it ....

What sparked the above was trying to see if Evo was in fact done, before I 
tidy it.  I'll try and send it this week.  I've been in hibernation this

You shouldn't need details!  My word is my bond!

SuSE (sorry, SUSE) 8.2, of course.  Don't tell me you didn't know!

Of course I didn't do it myself - what do you think I am: a genius?  I got 
them from, and they're reportedly very good, 
but James can't replicate the error, even though it's been reported by 
several people (probably just the sarky sad types like me).

Tinker?  Tinker, you say?  Do I look like I have time to tinker?

Phwaah - do you think I'm going to risk this for all users?

Too much bother - I'd rather just whinge :-)  I might try that when I can 
afford to shut down all my stuff, but first I'm going to try the 
anti-aliasing thing.

Difficult to say, as yet.

Yes, that was why it was a bit disappointing - the first time in 5 years I 
can't run the GIMP in KDE and have it looking reasonable.
