Colleagues:

My Mac 7100/66AV bombed this afternoon while attached to the
Cornell Reflector (132.236.91.204) and operating CUSM PPc0.70b9. I
received the message "Floating point coprocessor not installed" as the
machine crashed.

There were a large (?) number of users on the reflector (seemed to
be more than eight) at the time. My Audio window was open, but behind
several of the video windows. When I clicked on the audio window to bring
it to the front, the bomb occurred. I _did_ have push-to-talk selected,
but haven't been having any problems with it until this afternoon.

This may well be a random occurance, but I thought you might want
to know.

Bill
