Sweet sweet nectar of life!

Messing around with the update now. The addition of the multishift tool is great.

No, sorry Twiggy. I am running an older GeForce 5200FX, only 128MB of. What kind of conflicts is it having in particular? Does anyone know? I was thinking about getting a new ATi video card.
