Last week I learned why it is important not to use your primary Windows computer (the one that does this web page and stores all e-mail) for dumb Linux and “C” experiments. A program ran away and wrote garbage over much of the useful data on the drive. I am in the process of reconstructing the data for the new web site from back ups that were 1 month old.

After this crisis is over, all Linux experiments will happen on a dedicated computer. I got a new Windows laptop that will mirror the Tubelab content of the main machine. This computer could do webpage support. It has been used for development of the big web page upgrade that is coming. Early in January, some of the changes will go live. As these are debugged and become fully functional, more will be added. The entire SE amp board manual will be on the site. Boards will be available at that time. New content is coming.
