Gotcha . . . well, ordinarily I don't use the computer (home desktop) that much, although work has been shrinking so more time to sit in front of the display . . . check emails in the morning, post something on XYMer's . . . check the FB "news" feed . . . ummm, . . . now what???? . . . try to fix something that's busted in linux side . . . ?????
So, the several "weeks" worth of dnetc would possibly be happening over several months . . . and, now that I've "forced" the cpu to 1 GHz things are more or less "happening" in a reasonable time as far as clicking on something and having it actually happen . . . whereas at 450 and even 800 . . . just not enough "brainpower" to do the job . . . .
On the placid GUI surface things have been . . . placid . . . it's only under the dark underbelly of applejack that it hasn't looked so good, if not downright weird . . . so I just meant that I'd wait to run AJ for awhile . . . running dnetc for a bit . . . and then see if that changes any of the AJ wackiness . . . but, perhaps rather than expecting it to be "hours" I should revise that to "weeks."
[Edit: Tested the "click on the dnetc file" method . . . guess I can't complain about how easy that was . . . . Also, used the drag the file to the Terminal to add "--flush" . . . so some 12 more stats go off to the motherlode . . . tomorrow I'll click "please send me my password, plz" . . . one more time . . . .]
