6E1, yes.  Sorry; it was last December.  My friend was going to drop
by , but cancelled and was back in school before he remembered.

	I asked the pfSense forum if I had enough memory and they said
	yes.  Wghat I've got should be fine assuming that everything is
	put together correctly.  My physical disabilities limit what i
	can do myself--that's the catch; it is why I have to ask favors.

	I'll save your mail just in case my friend gets off-track for
	some reason.  Shouldn't.  It is how he is putting himself thru
	college this time.  ---What I want is to be drawing as few watts
	as _possible_.  Especially since I have two tower cases going
