Chuckle.  2 of them are in fact in a 12x16 shed in the back yard, and 
occasionally I might need to step over to the other idle machine and 
look something up, so both have FF installed, but with the dram shortage 
FF causes, I don't run LCNC and FF at the same time on either atom 
powered machine.  Ditto the garage and its currently 2 machines.

That I have in the planning stage, starting with a fresh HD. But wheezy 
is an old friend and I have excised the majority of its warts over the 
years.

First off, I have some scripts that greatly simplify things for me, and 
which depends on dbus, which I read is deprecated, so what replaces it?

Thanks Greg.
