        long-story short, a friend who is a serious network guru kept
        insisting that my new server have a STATIC ip, not one supplied by
        DHCP.  ...So i forced my pfsense firewall to lock down the IP of the
        server-to-be [in services_dhcp.php (if memory serves)].  i mostly
        forgot about that static config, so the new computer failed to work
        correctly with what IP i was told to type in.

        aeound 03:43 it slammed into my mind that if i 'x' out the config
        on my pfsense box that i might be able to comply with my pal's
        instructions.  [[yeah, you can call him any number of names from X 
        to Z, but the facts are they this guy has been right--consistantly--
        for the two years i've known him.]]

        since noon here, i have my new computer running the latest 7.2, it 
        has a fixed IP, and i expect to have my services switched over by 
        monday.   ---hope the power holds; autumn && seattle mean wind storms
        and power-outs, ... and my 1998 kayak (ns1.thought.org) has about three 
        power-cycles left.
