:I am using Mathematica 2.102E/ on a PowerMac 8100 with Ram Doubler 1.6
:(16 ->32 meg) and PowerFPU.  I also am running MacSLIP 2.0.6  and have
:noticed a very curious puzzle.
:Whenever I start up the Mathematica, my SLIP will start running too.
:Any ideas?

yea, the mac front end sees that you have a network connection
and tries to advertises itself on the network as a means of copy protection.

I think you could stop this by going to the mactcp control panel
and switching to localtalk rather than slip, or some simmilar trickery.

(for those not familar "SLIP starts running" means mathematica tries
to make a modem connection, in this case for no purpose other than to
check for a duplicate copy on whatever remote network you are set to
connect to.)
