To me that would be invaluable.  Running on Windows Server 2003 and
unwilling to upgrade machine and OS unless I can run my legacy doors.  I
have a number of elderly users who come here just to play my door games,
the card versions, of all types, using JNS card games.

I am better than the average user but I am not proficient in any of
what you both have been writing (headless, what's next) about.  Though I
can follow directions/instructions.  It is how I learn much of what I
have learned.
