Hehehehe... bizarre... real bizarre. When they said Mac users "think different"... well, that's different.
Glad I could help. Wish it could have been figured out sooner though.
LFS isn't so difficult as it is addicting. You always think of a "better" way to manage your system after you've passed the point of no-return with your current install.
As for Halo 2... That's not me
Although I do have an Xbox and a copy of it, I've never jumped on Live. I have an unnatural/irrational aversion to pay-to-play services. I've manged to beat Halo 2 on normal, but the Heroic setting seems to be a huge step up in difficulty. I didn't notice that kind of spike in the original Halo. Maybe I'm just getting old and the reflexes ain't as quick anymore.
