Excellent!!  That way, I don't even need the "sled"!
I can just fill the "opening" where the sled would
fit in by pouring stycast into it and waiting for it
to "set up".  That way, I would never have to worry
about it again!  It will make it useless as a true
"portable" but it will fit *my* needs quite well.

I wonder if I can pull the battery and squeeze a
power supply in there to get rid of the external
"power module"...?  Then it would be nice and
small, nothing "dangling" on the outside, etc.


If that works, then I can probably get rid of
my Voyager (I think the SPARCbook is a faster
machine than the Voyager... I'll have to check).
Note to self:  remember to eBay the memory
modules!  :>

Thanks!  I'll start on this later this afternoon...
