Agreed. Excuse me if I have my head in the sand on this one, but do we have
a recommended hardware list? (always seeking the fm to r.) If we don't, it
might be nice. I'll supply a page for it if we need it, but unfortunately
time is not something I have enough of at the moment... I need to grow
another brain so I can multitask cleaner. My current UB set up is prone to
memory corruptions when stressed.
