Will do the serial log dumps tomorrow.

I still cant connect to the candidates on  I've tried
on many machines from many locations.  I can navigate and download from no problem.  Any chance at getting the rc's to remain
posted over there at 'build' if the problem is happening for more than just

Will continue to try again tomorrow too.  If not, will
keep using 870 for now.

Silly question:

On a scale of 1 to 10, if all of our XO's in deployment are security
disabled, we never do an online update, and all boot fine on os23, what is
the opinion on using os23 to install, and then updating just the changed
modules from there to those in the RC to keep the ubifs snappy behaviour?  1
would be "horrendously stupid", 10 would be "harmless and smart if you get
all the modules in sync" .  My fear is the answer is going to be 5. "might
work, buyer beware", and I have to use my own brain to make a decision  :-)
