If/when we get our wiki up, the outcome of your work would be a great thing to
record there. (If you're too busy, I would be more than happy to scribe for

I, for instance, have a TU58 I'd like to get running some day, but given that
I have about 173 higher-priority things on the list in front of it, I'm sure
that by the time I get to it, I'll have some dim memory that it was talked
about here, but short of good luck with Google, or a voluminous search
through the archives, I won't be able to find what I need - and I'll have to
ask... :-( Had we all that kind of stuff in a wiki, on the other hand... :-)

Yes, not everyone will be diligent enough to check the wiki before they ask,
but hey, if they don't, you all can enjoy yourself flaming them for not being
willing to exert themselves to learn how to fish, before asking to just be
given some.. :-)
