This is Tony Baechler. Please write off list about the BATS live / rescue 
CD. I know wireless networking is a problem and I really need help fixing 
it. I don't have wireless here. I installed all of the non-free firmware I 
knew about but I guess I missed something. I had surgery and will shortly be 
starting the evaluation for a kidney transplant (stage 4 kidney failure) so 
I have very little time, but I'm interested in feedback. I'm in the process 
of turning it over to someone else, but I still have the chroot here. Please 
email bats at batsupport dot com. Thanks!

Also, due to the above lack of time, I'm leaving the blinux list. If you 
need me, write to the above address. If you want to work on it, take it over 
or test it, please let me know.

James 5:16 Confess therefore your sins one to another, and pray one for 
another, that ye may be healed. The supplication of a righteous   man 
availeth much in its working. (ASV)
