Thanks a lot for typing all this. Very interesting

Ok, so that means that I'll have to unmount the lowest
pc board in order to take a look at the ROMS.
I had been avoiding that as those two boards are
very dirty and I'll have to clean them up. The machine is
at work, and cleaning it is a water hose/backyard sort of
job; I'll have to transport it home for this; not a nice
prospect, because of all the construction work currently going
on at Cornell - I can't get my car close to the office,
I'll have to carry the beast a good 1/4 mile, uphill :-( .
