Hi everyone!

Damn!  I was sick during my skiing trip last year... no luck for us

Why am I not surprised? :-)

This is great work!

Great, then I can put the DECStation stuff into it.

My server system crashed over the holidays - a mishap that occurred
while I was performing a seemingly innocent upgrade of its memory.  So
now I have a nice new ELF installation (something I'd been putting off
for a while), and have just about re-configured all the daemons I was
using... fortunately I was a little paranoid about my linux-MIPS work,
and had backed up all 48MB of the various sources I was using...

Anyway, last night I was once again able to boot the DEC up to the
point of attempting the BogoMIPS calibration using my experimental kernel, so all would appear to be well again.
