ONLY if you agree to not ask MY wife the same question....

Well, any kit is easy.  I had two kits from the efi332 project, and so it
was a breeze.  My next project is to turn that '332 into a multitasking
(RTEMS) os for my "robot".  Then I'll make the second board and parts into
a robot with 1to4 Meg of RAM and 1Meg of flash.

I think her "snort-snorts" are over for this round (after 4 months).
She turned 2 yesterday.

95% means she'll be a basketball center.  45% means "normal" and
5% means she'll be AT MOST a 5.0-footer.

BTW, I met together with some CCGO guys (and wives and kids including
Rachel) for pizza at CiCi's (Collin County Gun Owners who meet once 
a month).  They all have e-mail and are computer-literate.  Some of
them were saying I could get a 600MHz 686 board for ~$110 and 16Meg RAM 
for ~$25.  Know anything about this?  I may have to get there at 9am
to find those deals, but I AM DETERMINDED that I'll have just as powerful
a computer as my wife (her daddy has a 686 waiting for her in Fla --
all she has to do is pick it up).
