<observation+> If I may . . . (again ;-), why is it not a hardware issue? You're a self-proclaimed, long-time fBSD user experiencing unforeseen circumstances and the folks attempting to help aren't noobs. So, it surely can't be a user/software issue ;-) . . . It sounds like you can get the files that you need/want and then go get some new stuff. It's not expensive anymore and frankly, it seems that this thread is doomed. I apologize, but I don't have time to read the lengthy explanations/rants/responses, but I think a new chapter in PJ's life is developing and I think that you/he/she should turn the page (I know, you're trying . . .). <o+> P.S. -- trim responses so we can get to the good stuff! > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org" > _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
