this really does smell like a graphics card issue. your card may be getting too hot, or it may be near the end of its lifespan. it may be something else entirely of course, but that is what i suspect. i recommend making sure it's getting plenty of air and maybe even adjusting the clock settings a bit under normal which can many times make a graphics card behave much better (but also many times not do anything at all)

let us know what happens

So emails are "just such a virtual thing" and in no way comparable to actual letters to you?

For me, yes. About the only thing of importance I receive via email is an occasional Amazon receipt or shipping notice. No company business is done through it, although I know of several people using Google's premium business accounts to administer their email.

My current job (which I start tomorrow) was coordinated entirely through e-mail. I wouldn't have gotten the job any other way.

Plaintext emails are like postcards, you didn't bother to put it in an envelope so the postman is perfectly entitled to read it 8)

I get your point, but completely disagree. Average people can use envelopes without being instructed. Encryption, however, is not something most people can use. If I'm trying to get a job somewhere, and I send in my information encrypted, I would have about a 0% chance of getting that job.

Also, one can not control the method in which e-mails are sent to them. Many places have made it a habit to e-mail you with very privileged information after signing up, such as usernames, passwords, etc.

flashfxp is the best ftp client IMHO. It's paid-for, but you can use it past the trial period if you can put up with its nag.

The danger with google is that their lack of appropriate privacy could in the future be used for many more things than advertisements. Just because it's "only for advertisement purposes" right now doesn't mean that the data they mine on people can't be used in other ways in the future.
