17 My, you are an optimistic fellow! OK, that's an idea, but I'll wait
18 and do a little more browsing on the subject. All the threads I'm
19 finding in Google start off with this feature NOT working.
21 I think I'd do better to create some sort of personal overlay - over
22 which I know little about - and try to get the files I need in there,
23 as there is no guarantee that anything new supports this requirement.
25 Of course, if I had a job and earned money then I could solve the
26 problem that way, but I'm out of work, broke and cannot even think
27 about going down that path.
