  2. The first two are for Linux, the third for windows.

    Um....no, the 2nd one is also for Windows, but it was build under
    cygwin using that environment's gcc. It works, too.
    The first one was compiled using MS-Visual C++, so I suspect
    it's for Windows as well, yes?

    Thus, we see a perfect illustration of some usenet ng traditions
    here: the question asked was "which is fastest?"
    Thus the "answer" was not only wrong, it was for a different
    question altogether.

    Well the subject may have asked about speed but I missed it because the
    subject column in my display wasn't wide enough. Which is why relying
    on your question being in the subject header isn't a great idea. ;-)
    And the message body asked what the difference is in the files, not
    about speed.

  7. I generally install with the installer. I do have a reference 1.6 on my
    machine that I installed from azip, and I used:


    Since I've never used the others, I don't know about them, but that one
    worked for me. Then again, I've had good luck with the installers.

  11. Bottom posting is the preferred norm in many newsgroups, and the desired
    norm in the secnews help groups where the Mozilla Champions offer most
    of therir help. We have found that consistent bottom posting, with
    minimal snipping in tech support threads, leads to tthe best help, since
    the entire thread, with all suggested fixes can be read in one post , no
    need to hop around all the old posts. We can offer help faster that way.

    I have appended my Moz Champ sig to this post. I usually do not here,
    since this in not an official Champ help group, we just pop in here to
    offer help. I did so that yuou might take a look at the Posting
    Guidelines, linked in the sig.

    As I say, this in not an official Champ help group, so these Guidelines
    are not forced on you, but reading through them may give you a better
    idea why I and the other Champs who post here, Ed, Dan, Irwin, and
    others, bottom post as a matter of course.

    I also offer the following Google search:
