Nice phrase, I'll pass along "Dread Guardians of Farm and Forest" to my daughter. We have two, referred to as "The Chlorine in the Local Gene Pool", "Cute, fluffy, with Fangs" , and a number of other phrases not repeatable in polite company. They are good hunters though, mice in our house don't last long. If Bwana (moi) doesn't trap them, the girls get them. About a 200 year old, converted one-room schoolhouse, it's got more nooks and crannies than a package of Thomas' English Muffins.

Your travails in the hardware space are an enjoyable read for me, especially until I get my activities going again. First thing, a new DMM. I foolishly left mine in Ohmmeter mode when attempting to read 220 AC on a furnace. One of the chips was faster than the fuse this time around. But you could see the spark through the non-transparent plastic case. 'Twas a wonder to behold. Plus I know who to ask the hard questions of when I get stumped.

Rock on dude, good read.
