Re: Precompiled headers (or other speed ups)

I'm sorry if my message came across as a complaint. It was only meant
as an inquiry to see if there was something I could play with and test
for people. I know my machine is "archaic", but I'm a pour 16-year
old. ;) I can't a afford even a $1000 dollar machine (and that
wouldn't be a particularly great machine). Anyway, sorry if I
offended. :-)

Also, Geoff, Is there any PCH patch or anything that I could test? I'm
willing to deal with a system that is still under heavy testing and
I'll send in bug reports. Sorry, I'm getting pushy. Keep up the good
works, guys. :-)
