ok great. if 'somewhere' can be 'upgraded' to a where we will at least try
to get started on turing/church/treehouse side. i'll ask around see if
anyone knows where it is.

ok. i hadn't seen (via threads) historically that they had been changed.
there was discussion about power issues for everything in house before
(what everything in house pulls individually) and some had said the boxes
with the hosts on them pulled a lot of power. very kewl that is no longer
the case.

like to have a full tech's kit (hopefully more than one) on hand not just
for the 'rack shack' but for all kinds of shit keeping it tucked away (at
least partially) to prevent theft at least in a small way. putting it on
the wishlist puts it in people's heads and then they see shit down the road
that can at least go into a kit and grab it @ a yard sale, C.L., freecycle

do you happen to know if they've already been checked out/tested for "does
this shit work?". i'll take a look and see if they're marked as such at all.
