There are some problems with the RAID system that have not been solved
yet.  The system is restarting at unpredictable intervals.

I still can't put my C2N232 stuff online, since the FTP file system is
currently full.  But I have a progress report from yesterday: I
successfully converted a VIC-20 program to tape format using a development
version of cbmconvert, and loaded it to the VIC-20 using my tape pulse
encoder program and the firmware in the C2N232 device.  The next steps
will be to implement XON/XOFF handshake (as some systems don't have
RTS/CTS), and to implement a faster transfer protocol (60 bytes per second
is not particularly fast).

What stuff are you referring to?  The PET software?

I'm making a backup copy of /pub/cbm right now.  According to the transfer
log, quite a few files have time stamps in the future (2038-01-19
05:14:07).  I'll compare the copy to the copy I made last April, so that I
know whether the file contents have changed.
