I am so behind in my computer hobby that I look like my behind :-)

It is one of the top 5 projects to get to... but life conspires to give 
me little
recreational time...  I've done the timing belt on my my wifes VW Bettle 
the timing belt on my Subaru Forester, my best friend's Aunt's house burned
and I'm helping him go through what is left of the house to recover what can
be recovered, I've been working extra at work lately, and my four year 
old keeps
me busy... and by the time he goes to bed, I'm 'running out of gas'.....

Wonder if it ever gets any easier :-) ?

I haven't forgotten.... I've got a bit more 'gas' tonight... so maybe I 
can see if I
can get the appropriate tape drives together... as I've got that athlon 
on the bench
and it's probably as good a system as any for doing the work.
