editing /boot/config.txt to see if that fat file system will let me.
In the meantime I've unpacked a img.gz that was on the now unbootable
card, and will write it to one of the PNY's with dd shortly. If that
works, I'll hack up the networking (I use host files here), fix the ssh
keys, and then see if it will update/upgrade. So I am making progress
slowly, in between the honeydo's from the missus who fell back in
February and now has a steel right hip she is still getting used to. So
