It looks that way ;)

I'll make do with the Sun-Linux version for the moment. If I go
carefully hopefully I wont trash my machine ... on occasion though I
am known to do something stupid.

I don't want to go through the pain of downloading it over a 56k link
either, not until it settles down.

 "Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear -- kept us
 in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor -- with the cry of grave
 national emergency... Always there has been some terrible evil to
 gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the
 exorbitant sums demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem
 never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real."
