Thanks for the support and nothing read into your Email Frank. It is
a fair question and one that I REALLY want to lay to rest. The
project gets really frustrating when you pick it up and then can't
work on it even for a week. Trying to put your mind back to where it
left off for the umpteenth time can get to ya.
Even my 17 yr old daughter asks me when it is going to be done. Which
I believe to be the only teen in the world that can do a 512k upgrade
with no help or instructions. :)
