Hi Derek,
I did what you suggested, and manually removed the files that weren't gone
after the automated uninstall.

I then installed 2.4.0, and it started up just fine, but couldn't find any
of my data (you can imagine how the blood drained from my head, and my
stomach knotted at THAT).

So I uninstalled it, and reinstalled 2.2.9, and All Is Well... but I do have
the older version.


and Thanks!

[Clock] Time is a human invention that allows for coordination and frame of
reference stabilization. Conventional planners have lost track of that, and
a few hundred years of industrialization and artificial manipulation of our
relation to natural rhythms has made us forget it. -- Charlie Gilkey

When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights, are
considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme
materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered. . . . A nation
that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than
on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death. -- Martin
Luther King, Jr.

Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and
conscientious stupidity. -- Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. --
Frederick Douglass
