  Sigh.  I hate PC fanboys.

  I'm not certain, but it looks as if he might have abandoned that
effort.  I was helping him out with some random logistics stuff a couple
of years ago.  He is extraordinarily competent but might be just a bit
off his rocker.

  It appears that Tribblix is the continuation of that work.  I've
pulled it down, and I have a few spare T2000s and T5120s here that I may
try it out on.
