Both the 18.04 and 18.10 versions I got were LTS -- it read at the site and I
forgot to mention that.

I saw that notification when getting it.  While I wouldn't mind switching to
64-bit mode, that would probably break a lot of the programs I use, not to
mention I'd have to get matching drivers for my printer.  Maybe I could fake
the whole thing.  After all, that's what Vbox is for.  I almost forgot to
mention that I burned 18.10 LTS last afternoon.

Good info and thanks.  Many times I use the D'Bridge internal editor.

Sure I an, but we're still stuck in the session pw thingy.  How about I mail
you one?
