cool. the grey type is a bit tough to read, though.

on the objects page there was a little thing on random numbers.
just for the record, a good collection of random distribution generators is
Carl Faia's "MaxAlea" collection. it should be at the ircam ftp in the "fat
chance" folder.

DALLAS, Nov. 12 (Reuters) - CompUSA Inc., the no.1 U.S. computer retailer,
on Thursday said sales of Apple's
  iMac for the weekend of Saturday Nov. 7 were its largest ever and
the new consumer Macintosh is the
 best-selling computer in the company's 13-year history.

 Dallas-based CompUSA said the translucent iMac has proven especially
popular with first-time computer users and families
 since its launch in August. Apple's recently introduced financing program,
which enables customers to buy an iMac for
 $29.99 per month, was also cited as a draw for customers.

 A CompUSA spokeswoman declined to comment on iMac sales figures.

 Shares of Apple were at 34-5/16 mid afternoon Thursday, up 10/16 on the
Nasdaq exchange.

 The iMac was the number one selling desktop model in PC superstores in
August and September, according to ZD Market
 Intelligence, an industry research firm.
