If the situation with the TANDON slimlines is any hint at this I'd say it
will only confuse one to look at the '801 spec to decide how to jumper an
;860. I'm milling around in the basement today, and will probably find the
SHUGART spec's I have, including the jumpeing info for the ;860. It's just
a matter of time. I have to find a place to put the stuff I've brought
upstairs . . . <sigh> . . . so my significant other can put up holiday

I was raised by the Grinch himself and will probably never learn to enjoy
Christmas except (MAYBE) for the period between Dec 24 and Jan12 (Epiphany)
which was, in my one-time homeland, Germany, the traditional extent of that
particular celebration. I'd vote for anihilation of any person place or
thing making even an oblique reference to that celebration outside the time
windown in which it belongs. I'm usually holiday'ed out by the tenth of
November . . .
