Finally, got the Rescue & Recovery program to build me a recovery startup disk! I needed to download the exe that creates the ThinkVantage Boot Manager repair utility and run the disk. I also had to uninstall the most recent version of R&R and drop back to the one that comes with the machine (4.0?). I can’t do a full backup to my IEEE 1394 WD MyBook 1TB HDD as it crashes on “br_funcs”…wonder if it will work on USB? When will IBM/Lenovo improve the Intel Q965 graphics driver for XP?

I have built a temporary PLCC programmer for the 16F877. The commercial adaptor had a short circuit on the power line. My version has power, ground and the programming lines only.
After some stuffing around trying to get the wordpress pkg installed on Bungalow for the Gerb to have a local blog engine, I have decide to do a remote (from here, that is) one at wordpress.com. I found several posts via Google that purported to tell you how it is done, but to no avail. Wonder why Ubuntu elected not to use WordPress install default locations??
