heyu did not like the seriel ports default params, so I asked on the heyu 
list, about 2 years ago, Ed Dipold, a regular on that list suggested I 
try 0666 and chown it to me. Worked flawlessly UNTIL I bought a new 2T 
drive and installed stretch 3 weeks ago.  And has worked only 
intermittently since.

Right now its as if the cm-11a has died, and I note its not running more 
than a degree or so over ambient, not as warm as before. If I get some 
spare time tomorrow I'll open it and check for smoked parts. I hate to 
do that as those things make even old radio shack stuff look like 
Cadillac quality stuff.

FWIW, I have what used to be a 1st phone FCC license, and I am a C.E.T. 
and I know which end of a soldering iron gets hot as I have several, 
also a dual trace 1GHS/a sec scope and all the other tools of the trade. 
I also sat in the CE's chair at the local cbs affiliate from 1984 to 
2002.  The chair never got fully warmed up though, as I did it by myself 
at least half of that time.

I'll shut my horn off now.

It wasn't.

Buried under a pyramid, no wonder I couldn't find it. Thanks a bunch.

That too.  Thanks Reco.
