    Um, I think that would be me. locate does no good at all if you can't
    remember what you want to locate :-(

    VOILA! I am instructed to express much gratitude for your most
    excellent advice, which has resulted in the investigation of rc.local
    which turned up some stuff about the jmicro controller screwing up the
    dma blablablabla which has been there forever. Jmicro should eat ****
    and die.

    You're welcome :-) I'm not up to ascii today, although I think I have a
    utility to do it on the fly. May I make a suggestion? When adding
    stuff to rc.local I put something like:

    echo "Starting Time Server"
    /usr/sbin/ntpd -c /etc/ntp.my.conf
    echo "Time Server Running"

    I do this for a reason ;-)

    "Nobody to know what it is..." OK, I'll bite. What is it? I just
    reset the time whenever I think about it, and I'm usually fast.

    I was providing a template. The first echo tells me what is happening,
    the second tells me it finished the task. Should the process hang, I
    will be able to see what was going on when it hung.
