  I own that system; I just haven't picked it up yet.  We have a former
Series/1 guy in our orbit here at LSSM; he has offered to assist when
the time comes.  Now that I've gotten some big things off of my to-do
list this year, I'm hoping to plan a small truck trip out to VCFed
before too long, to get that and some of my other stuff out of the way,
and maybe bring a few more goodies to leave in their place.
