I think I saw that yesterday, but I'm up to my butt in malfunctioning 
g-code ATM.  Worse, I am the original author, but before I can really 
put this thing to work, I need to validate that it will run valid gcode, 
any of it, that I throw at it.  But I just discovered that I need a 
string variable in a conditional statement.  And linuxcnc does NOT have 
such a critter that I know of. I can make it work, but it will take 
about 20 more LOC, going the wrong direction in the LOC dept.  I like to 
simplicate where I can.

So no, I've not tried it yet.

That bricked one of mine, worked on the other 2, fortunately I bought 
3. :)

Thanks Alan.
