Ditto re: posting this to the whole list, Mark. I didn't realize that a
simple reply would go only to you, and I meant it for the list. -Jim

* In looking at that web page reference, the extension cord for the
*Greyscale* QuickCAM for Macintosh users is not part of the offer. I called
Connectix Tech Support, and was told that the Greyscale QuickCAM comes with
a three-foot cord, and that this is not capable of being extended. If you
have info contradicting this, I'd like to know about it. -Jim Weiler
