I'm off to my friend's place this afternoon (the one who has done wondrous
workarounds with various software in the past on his and other platforms) to

first one after the Windows updates and mother board device drivers are
It will be painful but not nearly as bad as it could be since I've only had
this thing in place since Monday.
