Cool.  That's two versions ahead of the last ones uploaded to fnet!  I
look forward to them being made available!  I'm hoping that now the
Acer is up, I can get the Deskstation stuff I did for 1.2 into 1.3.  I
never could get a good tree to diff against for reasons I still don't
fully understand, so I'm just going to do it over again.

Alas, my machine is only a 100MHz box :-(.  I guess I'll have to
settle for speed that is just a little better than intel's P5@100MHz.
If I don't miss my guess, that means that my numbers should be about
496 for the time, and about 201575 per second, which is still a little
faster than your P5 :-).

: so I didn't yet try to rebuild Linux/MIPS on a Linux/MIPS machine.  But I'm
: getting closer!

Cool.  Any idea when this stuff will be uploaded?

Also, where are the archives for this list.  I can't seem to find them
on, but I've not looked in the private directory.  Likely the
location of the archive is in the archive :-(.

The reason I want to look in the archive, is that I'd like to know
what the needed versions of everything is wrt to the tool chain.  I
think I need to rebuild my toolchain to make this all work (I have a
post 2.7.0, pre 2.7.1 snapshot right now), but couldn't find the mail
I wished I'd saved so went looking for the archives that aren't
